Companion Plants

Companion planting, or companion gardening is the practice of planting two different plants in close proximity to each other on the theory that they help each other in some way. Some plants complement each other, giving off by products that the other plant needs. Those by products are chemicals and micro-nutrients. Other beneficial plants provide some protection against insects and planting a few of them near a desired plant will keep the insects away.
