what to plant and not to plant

Post  Eric Lingo on 9/13/2014, 10:27 am

is there a book or chart that has a list of what not to plant next to each other or what to plant after or before something do these matter much in Mel's mix.

Yes, there are lots of books and have been lots of posts on companion and succession planting. I have a book called Carrots love Tomatoes. You could google companion planting and probably come up with charts and all kinds of info.

I have found that it doesn't really matter much in the SFG.

Wikipedia has a nice entry on it. There are plenty of charts and articles about companion planting on the web.

Carrots Love Tomatoes is a great book!  I also found one at the library called Secrets of Companion Planting.

And there IS a LOT of info on the web.  I downloaded stuff from Portland Nursery,  Ommas Aarden Heirloom Seeds and a few other places.

I don't put a lot of stock in companion planting. I do use trap plants and intersperse garlic and onions throughout my garden.

Camp, Is there anything that you don't plant in the squares next to garlic and onions? I want to disperse garlic and onions squares in different boxes to insure some do well.

not that I can think of. The onions and garlic grow in their own beds.
