    Blueberries will produce a little bit better if there are different cultivars close by to produce cross pollination, but its not absolutely necessary. When you bought those 4 plants did you get at least two different cultivars?

        A cultivar is a slightly different plant of the species. You should be growing rabbiteye blueberries and "Aliceblue", "Beckyblue", "Bluebelle", "Bonita" and numerous others would be cultivars of Rabbiteye blueberries. What sets them apart would be when the berries ripen mostly but there are some other things also.
