Companion planting is one of the easiest ways to mimic a natural ecosystem more closely. There are many benefits you’ll see in your garden if you use companion planting coming this new year 2022.

At first companion planting made no sent to me. However, if you stop to consider how plants grow in nature, there’s never just one species in a section of ground. There’s always a mix of species with different ecological functions. While just skimmed the surface of the interactions between plants and how they will help each other grow, we do know that many plants have beneficial relationships and that applies to garden.
