Mix & Match Guide to Companion Planting, The
An easy, organic way to deter pests, prevent disease, improve flavor, and increase yields in your vegetable garden.
With its unique split-page mix-and-match system, The Mix & Match Guide to Companion Planting is a colorful visual gardening guide to which vegetables, fruits, and herbs grow best with one another, and which do not. Due to the revived interest in vegetable gardening, people are again turning to the age-old practice of companion planting as an effective way to avoid chemicals and reduce labor simply by placing the right plants next to each other in the garden.
This book is designed to help gardeners mix and match various companion plant pairs and groups to create healthy, harmonious botanical communities. All you have to do is choose from the extensive plant directory to find the perfect plant pals. Each central crop has a row of colored dots along the top and bottom of the strip showing its “requirements.” Turn the strips and match the dots to find your plants’ best friends. The more dots that match, the better the chance your plants will flourish. Hardcover, Spiral Bound
