What two plants should not be planted in the garden: "will not make friends" with anything and destroy the crop

Fennel and wormwood are best grown separately from the rest of the garden

Experienced gardeners know that the wrong neighborhood of plants in the garden can destroy all efforts to grow a crop. There are several reasons for this, including common diseases and pests. Another is "competitive" behavior, which forces plants to build up green mass and root systems rather than invest in fruits. The latter is caused by the presence of two crops in the garden. They will suppress the vital activity of almost any vegetable.

These are fennel and wormwood, and they have no place near the beds. These plants should be kept separate. Where they will not harm other plantings. It is known that fennel is especially harmful to tomatoes, beans and caraway seeds. Wormwood, on the other hand, is dangerous for all vegetables. The two of them can destroy almost the entire harvest in a small garden.

But there are successful neighborhoods. Here are some good pairs to plant next to each other:

  • carrots and onions - protect each other from pests;
  • cabbage and celery - help protect each other from common diseases;
  • basil and tomatoes - also mutually drive away dangerous pests;
  • Cucumbers and corn - cucumber shoots weave well along corn stalks and bring a longer harvest;
  • beans and corn - by braiding corn stalks, beans protect them from pests and in return receive more sun;
  • tomatoes and cabbage - sunny fruits do not appeal to pests that eat cabbage leaves.
