The Benefits Of Growing These Plants Side-By-Side

Companion planting is the scientific study of what we gardeners see via experience: some plants grow really well when in the presence of others.  Diversification is key in any garden, and there are pairs that just complement each other well.  Whether it's a growing pattern (i.e. tall plants giving shade to ground cover) or one plant  being especially good at repelling the pests of another there are a number of known combinations that just do well together.  The folks over at Rodale's Organic Life have compiled a list of these pairs.  Check it out below and incorporate some into your garden!
