That’s what friends are for…
Just like people, plants can either support one another to grow or make things difficult for each other. Companion Planting is like putting together the guest list for the perfect party, get the combination right and it will go off!
Some great examples:
- Plant Marjoram all through your veggie patch to attract the good bugs and deter the bad guys.
- Plant Calendula with your Tomatoes to repel tomato worm
- Rosemary can deter cabbage moth, and Thyme keeps away cabbageworm.
- Lettuce does not play nicely with parsley or celery.
