Companion Plants

Intercropping side-by-side in order to benefit one or more crops is known as "companion planting," and it's long been practiced over the centuries. This technique has deep roots in cultural tradition, folklore, and science. Depending on the combination, companion plants can act as "trap" or decoy crops to disorient and distract insects pests; serve as shade or a trellis; fix nitrogen to benefit surrounding plants; and reduce weed pressure. Browse this collection for varieties known to have a beneficial effect when interplanted alongside other crops.
