Companion planting is just one of the ways to reduce the
pest population in your garden. By keeping your plants
healthy and happy, you'll make them less susceptible to
insect and disease problems. Plant your veggies in a sunny
site, in well amended soil. Water and feed regularly, and
inspect your plants frequently, removing any leaves that look
diseased. subject, including:
