Everyone likes having friends. Even the plants in your garden are happier and healthier when they’re growing next to plants they get along with. When it comes to gardening tips, you’ll want to be sure to plant varieties that won’t crowd out or overpower the other plants in your garden.
Companion planting is all about giving your plants the support and nourishment they need. Everything from pest control to pollination depends upon it, and when it’s done correctly, it ensures that your garden will grow strong all season long.
Companion plants do best when they’re planted in close proximity to your vegetables and fruit bearing plants. You can plant them between the rows or simply intersperse them at random within your garden patch. It’s your choice and solely up to your discretion.
Good combinations include tomatoes and cabbage, cucumbers and nasturtiums, roses and chives, and even peppers and pigweed, all of which are easy to plant and maintain by following the tips in our Plant Care Guide.
Remember that you can always contact us or stop by the Rosehill Gardens Farm Direct Store and garden center to ask us your questions about companion plants and the ways in which you can organize your garden.
