Companion Planting Recommended Books

With the thousands of books that have been written about gardening, organic gardening, and companion planting, you may find it difficult to choose the right book for you…

We found ourselves in the same situation. Perhaps our choice of books will help you to narrow down your purchase…

For Companion Planting, we purchased the following two books:

  1. Carrots Love Tomatoes: Secrets of Companion Planting for Successful Gardening
  2. Secrets of Companion Planting: Plants That Help, Plants That Hurt

What one book leaves out, the other includes.

Our favorite tip:

Plant Borage! This beautiful plant will re-seed itself for the next year as well. Plant near your tomatoes – they love them! Not only that, borage attract bees which will also come across your tomatoes, peppers and other veggies. Other benefits of borage – the flowers look rather lovely in a vase, providing beautiful filler and added color to floral arrangements.

Borage is also an edible salad green, and the flowers are an anti-depressant! Eduardo Machado, a plant specialist from Uruguay recommends eating 7 flowers a day to keep the blues away. They’re not bad!
Other methods we have used successfully include growing garlic and parsley near your roses…
