Companion Planting:  A Reliable Option or Nonsense?

By wildflowers
August 29, 2010

So what about Companion Planting? Is it merely folk lore and old wives' tales without any scientific evidence to back it up? Or can you create a beautiful garden that flourishes in rhythm with the natural balance that mother earth has to offer (without the use of pesticides or other harmful chemicals) by using companion planting practices? Maybe some traditions and folklore were created for a reason.

What a wonderful article Christine!

I'm an organic gardener who is always on the lookout for more information on companion planting.

Great listing of plants too! I'm definitely bookmarking that page so that this winter, when I'm planning next Springs garden, I can easily return to it!

Thanks for sharing it with us!

Thank you so much Chelle,

Seems like we have a bit in common Rolling my eyes. I really enjoy organic gardening, even though it can be challenging I am finding ways to work through them. Companion planting is big a part of my organic gardening approach.

I want to do a follow-up list of companion plants to add to that one... I'll let you know!
