Companion Planting

Companion Planting

Companion planting refers to the practice of planting more than one crop in the row or planting a different crop between two rows of a like crop. It is theorized that or aroma of certain plants are inhibitory to some diseases or insects. Companion cropping can effectively use garden space and is particularly useful in small gardens. If companion cropping is used, select companions with care to avoid shading or excessive, competition for water and nutrients.
