Companion Planting for Fruit & Vegetables

Would you like healthy and strong plants? Crops that aren’t destroyed by pests? And a bountiful harvest of produce?

If your answer is yes to any of these (and who wouldn’t want all three) then maybe it is time to consider taking a close look at companion planting.

Anyone growing vegetables at home, or on an allotment, can take advantage of it.

I have written two in-depth articles on Vegetable Companion Planting for fruitnveggie.com that I am confident can help educate and inspire both new and experienced growers to try using the concept.

The first covers the basics of companion planting and explains what exactly it is, the numerous beneficial effects it has, and how you can start to use it in your vegetable patch.

The follow-up article goes a bit more in-depth. It outlines 10 of the best companion planting combinations for the vegetable garden. It includes successful combinations for the likes of tomatoes, potatoes, lettuce, carrots, and many more.
