Companion plants for peppers - companion planting utilizes space and optimizes the health, flavor and yield of plants. Plant peppers with: tomatoes, parsley, basil, marigolds, geraniums, carrots, garlic and onions. These plants grow well together and actually benefit one another. Do not plant peppers with beans or kohlrabi - If planted in the same garden leave 4 feet or more spacing between plants.
Companion plants for carrots are radish, peas, sage, lettuce, onions, leeks, rosemary, wormwood, tomatoes, marigolds, and scorzonera. Do not grow carrots near fruit or nut trees, grapes,dill and parsnips. Planting your carrots along with radishes help to mark your carrots and suppress the weeds. Try planting two or three rows and mulching it with newspaper and straw in between the rows to keep out the weeds.
