What two plants should not be planted in the garden: "do not get along" with anything and will destroy the harvest
Experienced vegetable gardeners know that improper plant proximity in a bed can destroy all efforts to grow a crop. There can be several reasons, including common diseases and pests. And also - "competitive" behavior, forcing plants to build up green mass and root system, instead of investing in fruits.
OBOZREVATEL found out that the latter leads to the presence of two crops on the vegetable garden. They will inhibit the vitality of almost any vegetable.
These are fennel and wormwood. They have no place near the beds in any case. These plants should be kept separate. Where they will not harm other plantings. Fennel is known to be particularly harmful to tomatoes, beans and cumin. Wormwood, on the other hand, is dangerous to all vegetables. Together, they can ruin almost the entire crop in a small vegetable garden.
Instead, there are also good neighbors. Here are good pairs for planting next to each other:
- сarrots and onions - protect each other from pest flies;
- cabbage and celery - help protect each other from typical diseases;
- basil and tomatoes - also mutually repel dangerous pests;
- cucumbers and corn - cucumber shoots weave well on corn stalks and yield crops longer;
- beans and corn - braiding corn stems protects beans from pests and gets more sun instead;
- tomatoes and cabbage - sunny fruits don't like pests that feed on cabbage leaves.
