Beginners Companion Planting Resources for Gardening
If you are just starting out you may be asking yourself “what should I plant together?” OR maybe more likely… “What plants should not be planted next to each other.” That’s why I made a handy printable Companion Planting Chart pdf you can use!
This post is mostly pictures because what can you say…the plants are growing..except for the little pests that are eating some of them..Grrrr. I left the dates on some of the pics so you could see the progression of growth.
This pic shows one of the places where I made room in my flower garden for the veggies…
Companion Planting can be done anywhere!
Broccoli, Leeks, Lettuce, Brussels Sprouts, Sugar Snap Peas…
Notice that some of my planting is done in simple containers on my porch.
Of course what garden is complete without a few pests….I’m going to put sandpaper around my plants to see if that helps..it’s said that Snails don’t like to crawl over rough stuff..we’ll see. I’ve tried egg shells and a little bark..nope…
One of the secrets to keeping weeds down is to plant really close together…enough room to grow..but close enough together that no weeds grow..You can plant at least 1/2 of what a package says to plant apart and still have a great harvest!

If you are asking yourself “what should I plant together?”
Here is a chart that shows..what plants do well when planted next to a certain other plant. AND what doesn’t grow well together…it really works! That is exactly what Companion Planting is all about!

If you are feeling a little confused on what you might want to plant, Heirloom has EVERYTHING you need to get started! If you don’t want to plant every little thing…you can save for next year. The only thing that will happen to the seeds is that they will take maybe a day or 2 longer to germinate.
I will be planting more warmer weather Veggies soon..when we have some consistent heat going here in the Pacific Northwest..here are some awesome books that go waay more in depth if you are interested. Lots of awesome tips for Companion Planting.
