Companion Planting

Friday, August 28, 2009
Companion planting is a method of gardening that minimises the risk of pests and disease, without the use of pesticides and fungicides etc. Plants that complement and support each other are planted together. Some combinations works because of scents and chemicals the companion plants release which repel undesirable bugs, or attract desirable bugs.
