If planting two vegetables that are companion plants do they need to be in same raised bed plot to be effective. Same goes if they are enemy plants how far away should the plants be.

For tomatoes they like carrot, celery, cucumber, onion, parsley, pepper (according to one guide) but they always can't planted be the same bed. Tomatoes need the room. They may be in the bed next to it.

There is a lot of misinformation on the web about companion plants. One guide will say it is ok for a plant and then another says to stay away.

Any helpful information is welcome. If anyone can recommend a chart or guide they know that works will be helpful.

You're definitely right about there being a lot of misinformation on the web!

I'm pretty sure that for plants to be either helpful or "combative" they need to be in the same bed.

There is a companion planting forum here on NGA that you might find helpful:
