Companion planting

Companion planting is a gardening technique that involves planting different species of plants together in a way that enhances their growth and benefits each other. The idea behind companion planting is that certain plants can help each other by repelling pests, providing necessary nutrients, and attracting beneficial insects to the garden.

One of the primary benefits of companion planting is pest control. Certain plants can naturally repel pests, and planting them alongside vulnerable plants can protect them from being attacked. For example, planting marigolds alongside vegetables like tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers can deter aphids, while planting mint or basil alongside cabbage can help keep cabbage moths at bay.
