Three sisters gardenCompanion planting refers to the establishment of two or more species in close proximity so that some cultural benefit, such as pest control or increased yield, may be achieved.

Many organic gardeners are intrigued by companion planting. Over time or by accident, many gardeners have discovered companion planting methods that bring noticeable benefits to certain crops. By sharing your companion planting knowledge in this survey, you will help us create a publicly accessible database of companion planting schemes that work in different gardens in different climates.

Look for a report on effective companion planting methods in a future issue of the magazine. Thanks so much for your valuable help!
