The compatibility of the plants in the garden at the cottage
Many gardeners and farmers began to use compatible plants for greater yield and quality in their gardens.
Basically, this method is used by supporters of natural farming.
It is known that a culture can not only stimulate the growth of each other, but also to protect from pests.
Thanks to the compatibility of garden plants, you can significantly increase productivity.
Conversely, some cultures because of the incompatibility is strictly impossible to grow in the neighborhood, is suppressed and the yield is dropping.
Due to the mixed plantings there is an opportunity to use a smaller area of land for growing more vegetables.
The compatibility of plants rules
You cannot grow plants from the same family one after another, or is near, they usually have the same disease, some pests and to power using the same trace elements.
The depletion of the soil is one-sided. For example: it is not recommended to plant radish after radish, parsnip, carrot, parsley, dill from the same family and are bad neighbors.
Preferably not in the same bed to plant garden plants that have the same depth of placement of the root system, even if they have good compatibility. Root crops it is best to alternate beans and salad.
Pests find their prey solely by smell. Some plants attract them, others repel. It is also necessary to consider the compatibility of the plants.
Basil will deter the weevil from peas and beans, peppermint will protect cabbages from butterflies, and onions and garlic chase away carrot fly.
