Gardening

Companion planting simply means working with nature to get the best from your plants and, as Bob Flowerdew explains, it is the key to successful pollination and the prevention of pests.

With over 30 years' experience as an organic and often experimental gardener, Bob is the perfect person to explain just how it works. He has long observed interesting and potentially useful interactions between different plants - how some flourish when planted together while others fail. For example, a border of lavender, box or rosemary will protect your plants from invasion by slugs and snails, and growing chives under roses will help the roses resist blackspot and increase their performance. He also shows how to select plants that won't compete for light, space or nutrients in the soil. One of an indispensable series of books, Companion Planting will answer all your queries, and allow to you really make the most of your garden.
