Companion planting is the strategic placement of plants in close proximity of each other to allow you to maximize the use of space while taking advantage of the natural abilities of each plant.

Companion planting is centuries-old and can still be used to give gardeners excellent results today. When done correctly, it can reduce leaf damage caused by disease and pests by over 60%. Yes, that result can be accomplished without chemicals and poisons seeping into the soil.

Growing symbiotic plants alongside each other can give your garden a ton of benefits, especially if you want to enjoy pesticide, herbicide, and fungicide-free crops.

There's no need to buy expensive equipment or heavily rely on chemical products to keep garden problems in check. In fact, most of these can be reduced in severity or eliminated altogether in a completely natural way, you'll simply need to be smart about the approaches you choose and tailor them to your particular situation.

In Beginners Guide to Companion Planting, you will discover:

  • The millennial wisdom of companion planting rediscovered - from the Ancient Greeks to modern farmers
  • How to use plants for natural pest control, soil fertilization, and optimization of yields - one secret that professional agriculturists don't want you to know
  • Plants that love each other and hateful pairs that should never come together
  • The beautiful flowers that can repel or even kill pesky insects
  • The power of herbs in the garden, and why you should always plant this one specific herb next to your veggies
  • How to bring good bugs into the garden and make them stay
  • Advanced companion planting techniques (even some long-timers are unaware of these )
  • Extensive charts and appendices that will demystify companion planting once and for all

You may think that a natural garden producing unparalleled yields is out of your reach.

With a little bit of guidance, perseverance, and experience, however, you can discover the planting formula that will deliver wonderful results out of your space.

You have to understand the dynamics in the garden. You should know the sun, water, and soil needs of different plants so that you can grow them together.

Planning companion pairs in your garden should involve intimate knowledge of the flora and fauna. Luckily, this book belongs to the GREEN FINGERED GARDENER SERIES(TM) that will teach you all of the essentials to make the most of every single technique.
