Books and books have been written on this subject so if you want some in-depth knowledge, I think your library can help. In general, the following vegetables make good companions:
Asparagus with Basil, Tomato, Nasturtium, Parsley; Beans with Carrot, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, marigold; Beets with Brassicas, lettuce, onion, sage; Carrots with Bush beans, pole beans, lettuce, onion, pea, radish, tomato; Corn with
Bean, cucumber, melon, pea, pumpkin, potato, radish; Onions with Bean sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce; Tomato with Asparagus, celery, carrot, parsley, marigold. Enjoy your garden!
