Companion Planting

Companion planting is great for attracting beneficial insects that feed on pests in the garden, to balance nature out. Flowers are also a great addition for the same reason, as well as bringing bees to help propagate your vegetables. When planted near or next to each other certain fruit and vegetables love each other and will grow better, taste better, and can sometimes be brighter in color. So that means less or no need for chemicals or pesticides in your garden! Organic!
