Guide To Companion Planting
Must see guide to companion planting. This is an awesome guide to help you plant things that benefit each other. Nit only does it tell you which plants to put together, it also tells you which plants should be kept away from each other. You will learn which plants will support another and which ones will inhibit growth of another.
It will even tell you which plants will deter pests to certain plants. The guide is from Mother Earth News so you know it is going to be chock full of fantastic information. I have seen a lot of guides that tell you which plants to plant together but I really like this one because it explains why and tells which not to plant by. For each plant you get a good amount of info. Here is one example. This is for planting potatoes. Notice the plants that will do good, then the ones to avoid and then the ones that will help with pests. It is a great guide.
Plant near: basil, beans, cabbage family, corn, eggplant, flax, hemp, marigolds, peas, squash
Keep away from: apples, birch, cherries, cucumbers, pumpkins, raspberries, sunflowers, tomatoes, walnuts
Comments: hemp deters phytophthora infestans. Basil deters potato beetles. Marigolds (dug into crop soil) deter nematodes.”
Make sure to bookmark the guide so you can find it later when you need it.
