companion planting ideas

companion planting – the idea that certain plants, when planted together, can improve pollination, support growth, and even help protect each other from insects and diseases can be used to control pests.

Companion planting is especially helpful in keeping insects such as potato beetles, aphids, rabbits, and other insects and rodents from turning your vegetable garden into a wild buffet. Fill your garden with these plants and you’ll be surrounded by beautiful blooms and lovely fragrances and be (almost) bug-free all summer long.

It does take extra effort to design a pest-resistant garden. Filling the garden bed with the right mix of plants makes it possible to keep pests out of the garden while keeping pesky mosquitoes, moths, and other insects from buzzing about while you enjoy the summer sun
