Basics of Companion Planting

basics of companion plantingIt is cold around here.  Looking across the landscape of frost and frozen trees makes me think about this years garden.  There is a practice that some gardeners use called companion planting.  This is the use of a plant to either work in harmony with another plant or to repel pests away from that plant.  There are a few rules that you should know about, but generally, it is an easy concept to grasp.  If you are a gardener, this is a show that you should really enjoy and get something out of.  If you are not, the use of companion planting will increase the health and vitality of the tress and shrubs that you have around the house.

Join me today as I speak about the use of companion planting and how it can be useful to your gardening efforts.
