Companion Planting!

Whether you are just starting a garden or have been growing one for years this list will help you out. I have been compiling one for years and hopefully will keep adding to it for years to come with help of those who I have met along the way. I do not claim that these will guarantee work for you, but know that they have worked for someone, somewhere!  It is for reference only and please Contact Us if you have any to add!

Natural gardening is about working with nature, not trying to control it. Co-planting helps in promoting a healthy garden by encouraging diversity.

This growing list is compiled in part by my experience, through others shared experiences as well as ongoing research gathered from some great books. All these books are referenced at the end of the list and I encourage you to consider them as an addition to your home library as they make great references!
