Vegetable gardens are a great way to get your children interested in food, and can be a stunning feature in any garden. To get the most out of your crop try companion planting, it will help to keep pests away, but can also increase your yield.

What is companion planting?

Companion planting is the practice of planting two or more plants together for mutual benefit. This can lead to enhanced quality and growth in your plants, improved crop yields and in general a better looking, fuller garden.

Benefits of Companion Planting Vegetables

Beneficial Insects – attracting beneficial insects such as bees that help to spread pollen
Soil Improvement – some vegetable plants improve soil conditions for other plants
Decoy Plants – there are plants that emit odors that aid in masking the odors of insect-desirable vegetable plants.
