Q.How Close To The Raspberries For The Companion Plants

Zone Bloomingale NY Zone 4 | Sheree added on May 12, 2020 | Answered

I am trying to find out how close to the Raspberry plants should I plant the companion plants. I have several kinds growing as I had a really bad time with Japanese beetles last year. Should they be about a foot away or a little more? Cant find the answer anywhere on the web. I luv this site so I figured you might be able to tell me…..Please!

A foot is fine, if you can dig without hitting roots of the raspberry. Be careful digging around that close to the plant.

Generally, they just need to be in the same area or bed. The distance isn't all that important unless you are planting them on opposite sides of your yard. For this reason, there is no definitive answer. Just use your best judgement and if you are hitting larger roots, then move just a little further out.
