All you need to know about companion gardening and planting from garden design to selection of plants, and from mulching to plant behaviour.
Good and bad neighbours: over 200 garden plants and their preferred companions. How many of us really know the value of the plants around us? When you see a dandelion in your lawn, do you see a weed spoiling perfection or do you see a wild salad herb, bursting with vitamins and minerals?
There are plants that flourish when neighbours and others that suffer. Some exhaust the soil in which they grow others make a contribution.
