One of the main items I needed was a companion planting vegetable list to use for my recent Raised Garden Bed – No Dig Garden.
Problem was I couldn’t find a companion planting guide that was relevant to my growing zone. Not being one to stop at the first hurdle I decided to create my own and spent ages planning a vegetable garden which would be best suited to our climate and taste in food.
I have four vegetable garden plans available for you to choose from. This vegetable planting guide is for companion planting.I have planted each and every one of these gardens and can say I was impressed and somewhat proud of my success.
I managed to grow plants there were healthy, pest free and supplied so much food I was able to share the excess with family and friends. I am convinced it is the most efficient way to grow vegetables.
I have placed the name of the primary plant on the left and on the right you have a list of its companion plants.
I truly did have fantastic success using these principles and encourage you to have a try yourself, it is very rewarding.
