The A-Z of Companion Planting by Jayne Neville

What I like about this book is its unpretentiousness. It is well illustrated and full of what you want to know with tips on every page. Wildlife is considered  a priority beneficiary and ally, but of course there are benefits of yield when placing plants together. Plants who protect each other from foes in the garden with their aromas, stings and thorns are a further primary reason to match make companions in the plot.

The blurb tells us that some plants thrive in each other’s company. They offer protection from bugs and diseases, provide shade and enrich the earth with nutrients. Planting Basil, for example, next to tomatoes helps to ward off whitefly and a patch of nasturtiums not only looks good, but keeps nasty
aphids away from your runner beans.

Some plants on the other hand simply do not get on.

Complete with an easy to use diagnostic table and plenty of photographs.

We put this book in our Handy Books category. Inexpensive, hugely useful, easy to keep handy in a pocket.
