What plants should not be planted next to each other in the garden: the most dangerous options
The right neighborhood is the key to a bountiful and delicious harvest. Experienced gardeners know that by properly planting crops on a bed, you can not only increase fertility, but also improve plant development, simplify feeding, care and watering.
For example, near tomatoes, it is better not to plant cabbage - cauliflower, broccoli or kohlrabi, as well as peas. Sweet peppers and legumes have a common anthracnose disease, so they will infect each other with this kind of fungus.

The consequences of improper neighborhood
Improper proximity increases the likelihood of infection by fungal diseases and pests, the difference in irrigation regimes will lead to overwatering of certain plants.
In addition, the growth, general condition of the crops is impaired, and the yield and quality are reduced. You should also pay attention to the acidity requirements of the soil and the time of fruit ripening. It is better to divide the bed into different areas: plant herbs and herbs on the edges, and in the middle - cabbage, peppers, tomatoes and other long-ripening vegetables.
Gardeners do not advise planting crops twice in the same place. The rotation should be done depending on the type of root system.
Examples of bad neighborhoods
Tomatoes and cucumbers, peas, fennel, potatoes, cabbage
Potatoes and tomatoes are common neighbors, but the crops can get phytophrotosis. Tomatoes should not be planted next to cucumbers, peas, fennel, and cabbage. And "good" neighbors would be corn, turnips, and grapes.
Carrots and parsley, dill, horseradish
If you plant carrots next to parsley, dill and horseradish, they will have an unpleasant bitter taste. It is also not advisable to plant carrots in a bed with beets. Carrots like light, so do not plant them in the shade of trees.
Cucumbers and tomatoes, radishes, potatoes
Cucumbers do not like spicy herbs, which negatively affect their growth. Cucumbers should not be planted in a bed with tomatoes, potatoes, and radishes. And melon can give cucumbers an unpleasant taste because of over-pollination.
Where to plant beets
For beets bad neighbors will be: potatoes, mustard, spinach, beans and corn.
Neighborhood for garlic
Garlic is an excellent "sanitary" bed, because its sulfurous secretions prevent the development of fungal diseases. The only bad neighborhood for garlic is raspberry bushes. Also, if possible, it is better not to plant it next to peas and beans.
Beets will not grow well near salad crops. Parsley and mustard should also be planted away.
Cabbage and carrots, parsley, tomatoes, beans
Cabbage will not grow well next to grapes, carrots, parsley, strawberries, and beans. Cabbage and tomatoes will also negatively affect each other's growth.
Where to plant onions
Experienced gardeners advise planting onions away from beans, beans, parsnips, dill, cabbage, and beets.
Dill and spinach
Asparagus, zucchini, celery, and beets are not the best neighbors for spinach. And it is not advisable to plant parsley and onions next to dill.
Where to plant peppers
Cucumbers, greens, legumes and onions are good neighbors for sweet peppers. But do not plant peppers near potatoes and beets.
Pumpkins and zucchinis
Late cabbage, as well as tomatoes and carrots, will have a negative effect on pumpkins. But zucchini are very "friendly" vegetables and will root well with almost all neighbors in the vegetable garden, with the exception of cucumbers and potatoes.
Improper neighborhood for trees
Apple trees should not be planted near cherries, peaches, lilacs, or jasmine.
Cherries will not yield well near raspberries, apricots and blackcurrants, but cherries and plums will be good neighbors for them.
