mint and blueberry

Posted by vdubya z8 northwest (My Page) on

Is there a problem with planting mint (lemon balm: melissa officinalis) with blueberry (bluecrop blueberry: vaccinium "bluecrop")? I am particularly concerned with invasive roots from the mint killing the blueberry. The blueberry bush is in a 1-2 cu.ft. container, and is relatively young, about 2-3 ft tall.

Thanks in advance!

RE: mint and blueberry

Hmmm... I like it... visually...particularly if the blueberry were shaped a bit.

The mint root might be too invasive. I don't think the blueberry is going to like you digging in its roots to get it out of there, unless Melissa officinalis is a delicate shallow-rooted mint...
