Soil Mates: Companion Planting for Your Vegetable Garden Cover

 

Staff Pick

Companion planting — the pairing of mutually beneficial plants in the garden — is one of the simplest ways to increase your harvest without back-breaking maintenance or icky chemicals, and Sara Alway's Soil Mates is a charming introduction to the subject. In it, Alway highlights 20 winning plant combinations, each accompanied by an explanation of what makes the relationship a success, illustrated planting instructions, and a recipe that combines the two plants. Complete with information on garden preparation, planning and care, Soil Mates is a handy reference for the organic gardener...and a cute one at that.
