Bob Flowerdew's Complete Book of Companion Gardening Summary

Bob Flowerdew's Complete Book of Companion Gardening by Bob Flowerdew

All experienced gardeners practise companion gardening, although some of them may not realize it. The concept is very simple: the conditions in which a plant grows and the plants that grow near it affect its well-being in one way or another. Some plants are useful because they shade smaller ones; some accumulate minerals that benefit others; some attract pests and can be used as "sacrificial" plants alongside a more valuable crop; others just seem to "do better" with certain plants nearby. Based on years of experience and observation, this book is a celebration of colourful and sympathetic planting which aims to encourage gardeners to pay closer attention to the care of their plants. The author also wrote "The Companion Garden".
