Beans and corn are great companion plants

by Tom
(Idaho)

I had a ton of success last summer plant pole beans and sweet corn together. The beans climb up the corn stalks, saving you from having to build any kind of runner or support for the beans.


Plus, the beans are nitrogen fixers, so they help fertilize the corn. The only hassle is trying to pick the beans, but even that wasn't much of a chore. I'm definitely doing this again this summer!

Empty corn stalks solution


I've been planting corn for 5 years now, all I have gotten is beautiful stalks.

They stem like there is going to be corn, but nothing.

I planted my corn with beans and cucumbers but only got cucumbers, (small at that). can anyone help?

Thank you
cornless!

Peas and Corn planted together

I have been an avid planter for the past twenty years, but I just recently started companion planting. I heard about it from a friend and did some research on this planting technique. I plant a variety of things and typically have bug problems, so this idea was perfect.

A favorite plant of mine is peas and corn is a companion plant, which make for great soup or stew ingredients.

Since I started companion planting my bug problems have been reduced significantly and I have to use fewer pesticides, which make for healthier gardening.
