Angela Chandler, The Garden Academy
The art of spacing and plant chemistry! Our foregardeners were onto something. Companion planting is not just a garden myth; and science is catching up in some exciting ways. Plants share nutrients, communicate, and help one another. And some are just made to share space in the garden. Companion planting uses space economically, too. Better tomatoes? Happier roses?? Fewer pests? Companion planting can contribute to all of these and more.
