Companion Planting for Spring Cool Weather Crops

Companion planting is essential in creating a successful garden ecosystem. Well paired companions assist each other to grow well,  repel undesired insects, or even repel other undesired plant. As you plan your spring garden, take a look at the preferred companion list below to ensure you make the most of your garden space and resources.

Garden Update 3.15.15

Carnation Seedlings
A quick update on the seeds that I have already started. The green chives are doing well and developing lots of roots causing the bulb to be pushed out of the soil. The carnation (Botanical Interests Chaubad Blend planted  2.28.15) are showing their baby leaves. The alpine stawberries (Renee's Garden) are about the size of a fingernail and new seedlings keep popping up. The tuberous begonia is sprouting once again  (third year now).
