Q.Do High Bush Blueberries Grow Well Next To Mums?
Hi there, 2 yr ago I opened up a new High bush blueberry area and it was doing well. Last year we put some mums in between the blueberry bushes and they wound up getting a bit beefy. They are all at least 12″ apart. I’m wondering if these will bother the blueberry bushes development at all? Thanks, in advance,

Blueberry bushes will not tolerate most fertilizers. As long as you DO NOT feed with any nitrates and as long as what you feed them contains ammonium SULFATE and NOT ammonium NITRATE then they should be fine. Otherwise, Blueberries are sensitive to nitrates and will not do well when it is concentrated in the soil.
