Companion planting can increase your harvest of fruit, vegetables, and herbs and reduce how much work it takes to grow them. Here's how!

It's a method of garden management that maximizes the relationships between plants.

What is companion planting?

Science has discovered that growing plants together can be beneficial. Peas & beans have a symbiotic relationship with bacteria to turn nitrogen into a form usable for the plant.

Certain plants, like marigolds, deter pests that can be detrimental to crops.

Interplanting is a method of planting two or more plants for maximum space and resources.


The method of planting another crop directly after harvesting one is called succession planting.

Succession Planting

Mixed planting is growing multiple plants in the same small area.

Mixed Planting

Common companion plants include: tomatoes and basil, radishes and spinach, beans and marigolds, and many more.

Don't overlook the common mistakes as well like: overcrowding, ignoring sunlight requirements, and ignoring specific soil needs.
