Article: There's Always a Reason: Companion Planting
Sundownr (Bev) Wytheville, VA (Zone 6a) I've always companion planted with veggies, a few herbs, and the marigolds and nasturtiums. I thought the other flowers my elders grew in and around the gardens were just to beautify, so I never gave them much thought. I should have known they had a more useful function. As you said, "there's always a reason!"
Thanks again for another good one!
Sharran (Zone 7a) Thank you Sundownr...most of my ancestors loved the flowers in the garden, and tended them just as well as they did the vegetables. It took me a long time to realize what they were really doing.
gloria125 Greensboro, AL How appropriate for the 1st of May, when everything is blooming or getting ready to bloom. I guess every country girl has memories: but you remember yours, Sharran!
Yes. thanks again for another good one!
Sharran (Zone 7a) Gloria, thank you.
