Can I grow garlic next to my berries?


Your garlic will grow normally even if it grows next to a blueberry plant. It would be interesting but the flavors will not mingle.

However, blueberry plants prefer acid soils of a pH between 4.5-5.5. Garlic grows well at a soil pH of 6 or more (6.5 ideal). That means they may not grow well together unless the soil pH is adjusted for each plant.
