Q.Planting two types together

This spring we decided to plant berries where we had previously planted veggies. We have blueberries and strawberries in the same bed. Will they grow together or should we separate them?

Oh, these are wonderful companions, indeed! You will find that they provide a ground cover, and competition at the soil level that will be beneficial to the blueberries.

They can also benefit from planting peas or beans near or around to provide a boost of nitrogen to the soil. Just plant them behind everything or off to the side. They will leach nitrogen into the soil and help feed the blueberries.
