Organic Gardening methods
Get the best out of your crops with companion planting
Companion planting is a farming technique that has been proven to maximise crop growth, make the most of the available planting space and reduce the spread of disease and pests. The method has been around for hundreds of years and has been said to maintain soil balance and increase pollination too. The secret behind the agricultural practise is planting the right combination of seeds.
As well as some seeds being complementary to one another, planting the wrong seeds next to each other can be disastrous. To help you master the art of companion planting, Suttons — an expert gardening company and vegetable seeds supplier — has created an infographic to help show which crops benefit one another and which can cause each other harm.
