Companion Planting

By The Old House Web
Companion planting implies that some plants are beneficial to other plants, such as repelling insects, increasing production or keeping animals away.

The University of Illinois and other land-grant institutions haven't proven scientifically that plants actually help each other. Check with the Farmer's Almanac or Organic Gardening references for further information.
