Companions planting guide

Companions planting guide by MYKE

Companion planting consists in providing the best environment possible to the vegetables you grow. As you'll see in this planting guide, some plants attract beneficial insects, such as pollinators, or prevent the growth of harmful grasses. There are also plants that can harm or inhibit the growth of their neighbors.
