In the pot above, the tomato is cozying up to some basil. We also planted thyme with our strawberries, and the rosemary seedlings are about to find a new home with a rowdy group of hot peppers.
In case you don’t know, companion planting is a method of combining complementary plants in your garden in a way that is mutually beneficial, either by warding off pests, enhancing flavor, or helping to keep the sunlight/soil/water at ideal levels for both to thrive. You can combine companion plants in raised beds, regular gardens, and containers. (If you’re using containers, make sure you’re not overcrowding!) I found this companion planting list from Golden Harvest Organics to be very helpful.
