Transcript of Copy of Companion Planting Garden

For Trees Plant Bunches Design Companion Planting Grow strawberries with spinach and borage. Lettuce should be grown as a border as a pest preventative. Mulch with straw or pine needles. Riotte suggests pine needles make strawberries taste similar to wilder varieties of strawberries. Not only are strawberries and spinach good companion plants, they also go well together in a salad. Strawberry Patch Katie Lynne Watkins Comfrey has a deep taproot which delves deep into the earth, bringing up nutrients and minerals from the subsoil. When planted around fruit trees, it can be a helpful companion plant because the trees are able to use the extra nutrients and minerals. Sweet Alyssum attracts hoverflies which prey on aphids. Alyssum also attracts many pollinators to fruit trees and other flowering plants. Comfrey roots When planning small sections of plants together, it's a good idea to try and plan where the space is, and what you will be using it for. For instance, if you are going to be harvesting tomatoes daily, keep them close to the kitchen. Try to think of other herbs or vegetables that go well together in meals. Basil is a wonderful companion plant of tomatoes, and go well together for a spagehetti dinner! Potato Patch Plant bush beans with potatoes. Potatoes will be protected from Colorado Potato Beetles and the beans, also acting as a nitrogen fixer, will be protected from Mexican Bean Beetles. Use alyssum as a living mulch between hills. Large ground beetles, predators of Colorado Potato Beetle, need ground cover. Comfrey is used in compresses for bruises and sprains. Tomato Patch Plant garlic and onions between tomatoes. These keep away red spider mites. Also plant with carrots and basil. Basil improves the quality and taste of tomatoes. It repels flies and mosquitoes. Plant basil parallel to tomatoes instead of intercropping. Do not plant near fennel, kolhrabi or brassicas, for they inhibit tomato growth. Pumpkin Patch Plant pumkpins with other squashes. Dill, oregano, and nasturtiums should be interplanted in for pest management. Pumpkins and potatoes have an inhibiting affect on eachother, so do not plant the patches closely. When designing your garden, keep in mind that some patches you've planned may not go well next to each other. For instance, potatoes and pumpkins should not be grown near each other.

Bees need pollen and nectar throughout the seasons, especially early spring. The phacelia bloom in February and the alyssum, also a good source of food, will attract the bees to the blossoming apple trees. Phacelia
