I’ve decided to indulge in a little companion planting. I don’t know much about it but considered it couldn’t hurt to try a few partnerships to see if they get on well. I’ve planted some garlic in amongst my carrots to deter carrotfly and I’m planning to put some Nasturtiums next to my cucumbers and some Marigolds in between the cabbages and peas (to attract some friendly bugs to mtp). I found this link to a very helpful chart, especially the bit that talks about which plants ‘not’ to put next to each other. Anyone have any more suggestions on how I can pair up my plants successfully? Actualy, the BBC also has a good section on companions. Although they don’t mention Nasturtiums or the fact that chives can repel carrotfly.
