"Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier" by sophia
Great idea. Cloches made from vine and clematis branches - This would be a great garden idea to try for functionality (thinking of several veggies and flowers) and for decoration. I really like the look of these.
A great idea to help your garden grow fuller and longer! * Sturdy trellis is ideal for squash, cucumber, melons and other vining crops * Trellising vines increases air circulation to minimize disease problems * Keeps vines and fruits off soil for a cleaner, better harvest
To help them get established the first year you start them, pinch off the first set of blossoms up until July then allow the blossoms to grow so you can enjoy a Fall harvest. Next year you can enjoy the harvest in both Spring Fall (no need to pinch off any blossoms)
