Companion planting is one of the most useful techniques you can do to succeed in gardening. Pairing up plants with their recommended companions helps your garden plants thrive better and also provides a variety of benefits.
For one, companion planting uses space efficiently. It doesn’t matter how big or small your garden is as long as you’re matching up the right plants in a particular area. For instance, vines and tall plants can be grown perfectly together because vines grow on the ground while tall plants grow upwards.
The second benefit is preventing any potential pests in the garden. Companion plants can either attract beneficial bugs or drive the bad bugs away. This is very convenient because you can get rid of the pests naturally while your vegetables can continue growing without any disturbance from outside sources.
Lastly, companion plants give out nutrients to each other. One plant can release certain nutrients while the neighbor plant absorbs them—and vice versa. This give-and-take process can significantly enhance your plants’ health and create a more harmonious garden as well.
