Companion Plants

If you are like me, you want your garden to be organized, thriving, and extra healthy. When researching topic for this post I stumbled upon something I found interesting. The topic I want to cover is called "Companion Plants".

You might be wondering what the heck a companion plant is. Well let me tell you. A companion plant is a plant you can plant next to another plant that allows for both plants to thrive. They don't over take the space or take all the nutrients the plant next to it needs. They work in harmony to support each other. Below I will list out some of the common garden staples we have here in Southern Indiana and what companion plants do best.

Tomatoes: Basil, marigolds, asparagus, carrots, celery, lettuce, parsley, spinach, onions, peppers.

Cucumber: marigolds, beans, celery, corn, lettuce, dill, oregano, and radishes.

Squash: Beans, peas, radishes, peppermint, dill, parsley, oregano, marigolds.

Sweet Corn: Beans, cucumbers, peas, pumpkins, melons and zucchini.

Green Beans: corn, beans, marigolds, rosemary, cucumbers, peas, potatoes, radishes, broccoli.

Peppers: basil, onion, spinach, tomatoes.

Zucchini: Beans, peas, radishes, peppermint, dill, parsley, oregano, marigolds.

As you can see there are tons of options as to what to plant next to what. It just takes a tiny bit of research and time to plan out your garden and you will have a successful happy, healthy garden all growing season. We can support your gardening efforts by providing compost and top soil that will nourish and give nutrients needed to your fruits and vegetables. Let us know if we can help you achieve your gardening goals! Happy Gardening!
