Vegetables and fruits, like people, have natural friends they prefer to be with--and some they prefer to keep away from. Other plants lure harmful insects away from sensitive plants, the way dill attracts hornworms away from tomatoes. And helpers like garlic will drive Japanese beetles right out of the neighborhood. Getting to know the good and bad companions can double the bounty of your garden.Hide synopsis

I purchased this book because a favorite magazine gave it such great review. I was not impressed at first but after reading it more I decided it was useful. It is a fun read--the author has lots of interesting tidbits and she is very knowledgeable about her topic. The reason I only gave 4 out of 5 stars-the author will mention something and then drop it without telling more about what she mentioned; a bit frustrating. Still, the book is a good guide for companion planting.
If you have gardened all your life or are a neophyte, this book will open your eyes to how to get more garden in your garden. If you know which plants will actually help each other, you can cram more plants in your available space and you will have a happy garden and a more productive one.
This great book has so much more than this, though! It tells you which wild plants will help you and which ones will harm you.
There is a chapter on growing your herb garden.
There is even a chapter on which plants to grow to put more zip in your love life.
Take a look at this great book and you won't want to put it down to go work in your garden!
I recall my grandmother telling me that certain veggies shouldn't be planted next to each other because they retard the growth of the plant next to it, but through the years, I'd forgotten much of what she taught. Companion planting is almost a lost art, I think, but one which our pioneer ancestors knew well. I have a tiny (condo) garden plot so anything that helps me maximize my yield is greatly appreciated.
