I planted two blueberry bushes about 18 months ago. Unfortunately, a dozer operator got one of them despite me pointing out their location before he started. Anyway, my question is, do I need another bush to pollinate, or are they self-pollinators?

Also, I want to benefit from a mix of varieties. I'm in Knoxville so rabbiteye varieties are suited to the area. Do I need a mix of varieties within rabbiteyes or does mixing varieties mean I need a variety of lowbush, northern highbush, southern highbush, rabbiteye and half-high?
