Companion Planting....Gardening BFF's

Companion planting is planting plants that compliment each other..maybe they provide nutrients, repel pests, or provide vital shade.

A great definition of it is provided by John Levons in his "How to Grow More Vegetables:.. The growing together or all those elements and beings that encourage life and growth; the creation of a a microcosm that includes vegetables, fruits, trees, bushes, wheat, flowers, weeds, birds, soil, micro-organisms, water, nutrients, insects, toads, spiders, and chickens"

Companion planting is a natural way to grow crops by protecting the soil and naturally deterring pests. In monoculture (with only one crop) there is increased risk of diseases and pests, and uses artificial fertilizers that do not help to maintain healthy soil.

With complimentary plants your plants will be healthier, you will have higher yields, pest control, and one of the best parts? Less maintenance.
