Description

Over many years, people have observed that certain plants seem to affect, favourably or unfavourably, other plants growing near them. The quality of food and flowers can be improved by the use of 'companion plants', and disease reduced.

This little pamphlet is a quick guide to companion planting and lists plants which help each other in the garden, the field, the orchard and the forest, as well as those which harm each other, those which attract helpful insects and those which repel harmful insects. There is also a short essay by Evelyn Speiden Gregg specifically on what herbs can do for a garden.

Reviews

'Gregg's article is one of the best sources of information on companion planting available.'
