Summary

Companion gardening is just planting certain plants together because they will help each other grow and become healthier. It is said that companion gardening is even better than using fertilizers or artificial ways of letting plants grow because the plants can benefit from each other and it's all a natural process.
Some of the basics of Companion Gardening:



Tall plants are planted near shorter plants so they could some shade for the shorter plants. This works best between sunflowers and corn.
Companion Plants can lure away pests from green leafy vegetables, and they can also attract beneficial insects to help in the pollination of flowers. For instance, aphids are attracted to plants like Nasturtium, this lures them away from the other plants in the garden.
You can plant two plants on the same patch which will save you space and time.
Incompatible Pairings include planting garlic and onions near peas and beans. Because doing so will stunt the growth of the peas and beans.
It would be best for you to record what is happening in your garden via a logbook or a gardening journal so that you can observe which plants are good with each other and which plants are not.

will relisten

Quick and useful guidance. This is what I was looking for. I wish I had the book to view the entire list of all the companions and use as a reference. However, the audio did a great job noting the companion plants and flowers. I'll definitely be relistening.

Not good as an audiobook

I think a hard copy of this book would work better. it is more of a reference book, something I'd like to flip through back and fourth as needed. it doesn't really work as an audio book. Having someone read lists of plants was very boring and not helpful. I could barely get into it as an audio book.
