Many people who garden stay with what we consider to be a typical garden -vegetables in separate rows, flowers in flower beds and maybe some herbs in an herb garden. But there is a better way, and it’s not new. In fact, it’s been around for thousands of years! Interested in increasing your garden production, while creating more beauty and diversity and at the same time bringing in pollinators? This concept is now known as companion planting - plants you should grow side-by-side. Companion planting is a method of getting the most out of your garden in the most natural way. It’s a good way to not only make your garden work but also to make it look good. It may seem a little chaotic, but fun - you'll want to try it in your backyard!
