Tag Archives for " Companion Planting "

Companion planting is a gardening practice that involves planting different crops in close proximity to promote mutual benefits such as pest control, pollination, and nutrient uptake. By strategically pairing compatible plants, gardeners can maximize space, enhance soil health, and improve overall crop yield. Companion planting utilizes the natural interactions between plants to deter pests, attract beneficial insects, and enhance plant growth. Some common companion planting combinations include planting aromatic herbs to repel pests, intercropping nitrogen-fixing plants with heavy feeders, and pairing plants that support each other’s growth through allelopathy or physical support.
