Garlic vs. Legumes

Post  donnainzone5 on 10/9/2016, 6:36 pm

Supposedly, garlic, onions, shallots, etc. don't work as companion plants to legumes.

Does this necessarily apply to SFG?  If so, what is the time interval recommended for planting? 

Within the next 3-4 weeks, I expect to be planting garlic and onions in some of my SFG boxes.  Some of those are currently, or were recently. home to peas and/or beans. 

I'd appreciate any thoughts/advice.

From my own searching on the internet, it seems most people have no problem at all having them in close proximity or being planting after each other.  Some people obvserved that peas struggled near alliums (garlic, onions, ect.) but beans seemed mostly unaffected.  I believe the order you are considering, peas/beans followed by onions, should be perfectly fine.  Again that is just my interpretation from various forums.
