So, I have been trying to find a blueberry companion list for quite a while by searching and I wasn't finding much of anything. So, I decided to do some of my own research and I looked up a list of blueberry pests and found out what predators ate those pests. Then, I found out what plants attracted those predators. Lastly, I searched each plant to see which ones could tolerate a PH as low as at least a 5.5 and this is my conclusion.
I haven't tested them yet but I thought I would share my companion plant list.
P.s. I wasn't sure if I should comment it on an old post or post a new one.... I was afraid it might be buried in the other post since that one is 8 yrs old so I decided to just create a new post so that it's easy to find.
This is awesome, Melissa! Thanks for sharing. I've been struggling with blueberries, mainly because of my very-neutral soil Ph, but this confirms my native plantings will help support. It's a great list.
Thank you for doing this terrific research! What a lovely list. Really. We have extremely blueberry friendly soil, like, we're semi-overgrown with wild blueberries. Knowing that these plants, which have a nice list of other benefits besides attracting predators for blueberry pests, will perform well in such acidic soil is great news.
