Companion To Magnolia Trees?

Question From: 
Monika in  Dee Why,  Sydney NSW


Nature of problem: 
I would like to plant a row of Magnolia trees as a high hedge to screen out neighbour’s balcony. Is there anything I can plant underneath which would do well in the same garden bed? I would really like some blueberries, but would they be OK together? The bed gets the afternoon sun and the new soil is yet to be ordered. (Is there a special type of soil we need to order?). And what else would you recommend if anything to plant underneath? Thank you.

Answer: Not much info to go on Monika. At a rough guess, all should be ok. Order a best quality Organic soil mix.  Don
