Here Comes The... Sun?
Companion planting is combining different plants (herbs, flowers and veggies) to get a desired outcome. Outcomes such as detering pests, attracting beneficial bugs, helping each companion grow etc.
Basil and Marigolds became companions to many varieties that have already been planted. They were both planted alongside Cucumbers and Peppers. The Basil alone was added to the Tomato beds. Two new companionships are that of Green Beans and Eggplant, and Dill and Brussel Sprouts. We're excited to see the outcome of the relationship offered by the Green Beans and Dill. That's the extent of our companion planting for now although, there's more in the works. To find out more about specific relationships between companions, how it all works out, and future companion planting we'd love to see you at our Garden Structures and Companion Planting workshop.
