Companion planting

Companion planting is the practice of combining plants together which help each other in some way. Some plants make other plants taste better (such as basil, which makes tomatoes more flavorful) or repel insects (onions with insects that prey on cabbage) or attract insects (nasturtiums, which are more attractive to predatory insects than most plants, so attract away harmful pests).

 

Companion planting also includes which plants to not plant together. Basil may kill rosemary, for example.

 

There are a ton of useful sites online. This is one of my favorites, because it spends more time explaining why to plant certain things together.
