    We have an established patch of raspberries and a couple of blueberry bushes that we need to move. We would like to put them as close together as possible since we'll have to cover them with screening to keep the birds and squirrels out. Do I need to worry about cross pollination and if so how close can they be planted? Thanks for your help!

    blueberries and raspberries won't cross...but they do like different soils....

    No need to worry about crossing unless you plan to start new plants with seeds saved from your fruit.

    Thanks everyone for your responses! It will be much easier to protect them since I can plant them near each other!
