Companion Planting: A Simple Guide (Infographic)

Companion planting can be kind of confusing. If something goes well together, does that mean it might not go well next to another plant? Companion planting is really important to understand and utilize, because you can really maximize space, productivity, and also repel pests, with the right combination.

It is also true, however, that planting “bad neighbors” together might result in increased pests or unhappy plants. There are a ton of potential good combinations out there, but it’s good to know the bad ones too, so you can prevent unhappy neighbors!

This great little infographic for visual learners like myself, from, breaks down some good and bad garden neighbors, as well as some excellent pest repellants you could plant around the border of your garden or in between your vegetables to ward off the worst kinds of neighbors, that is, garden pests!

  1. Have any studies been done to determine if eating the garden incompatibles together would or could cause any problems with digestion?

    1. That would be an interesting study. Since there nothing but air, water, and nutrition added to any organism past the point of conception, any edge from the nutrition side would be helpful. Since the garden incompatibles don’t work well together in the garden, it would seem logical that they might not work well together in the tummy. But then you’d have to get someone to sign up for potential indigestion. Chances are we won’t see any pharmaceutical companies doing that study any time soon.
