Veggie garden companion planting techniques

Companion planting is the practice of planting companion plants around the perimeter of your garden bed. As this is such a great way of gardening, there are a lot of great articles and videos on the internet. Some of these sites also provide companion planting planting techniques. I want to share my experiences and observations.

I have been companion planting for a few years, and have found that over the past 6 years it’s been one of the most effective gardening techniques I’ve tried. For me, it has helped my veggie garden grow much faster than it would without companions. There’s a lot to learn and it takes some practice to get the best results.

The most important thing is to plant your seeds according to what you like. You can use a companion planting calendar or keep a list of what you plant together.

Here are the two ways I plant my veggie garden:

Row Planting

Row planting has been a long term friend to my vegetable garden. It’s been the key that’s allowed me to grow a bounty of produce year round. I’m not sure how I would get by without my garden – but I do love it!

My garden bed is 12x20’.

The best part is you can plant your crops to your heart’s desire. There is no need to have the same crops year after year because of the seasons. There’s also no need to plant too close to your crops, or too far apart.

How to Plant Row Plants:

There are a number of ways you can plant a row plant veggie garden.

Plant in one corner or the other – the one that most suits your space and that doesn’t have a pathway. If you have a straight row of garden space, it may not be as easy to plant in the middle. It’s best to plant in the corner you have the most of your garden space and that is easiest to access.

If you are planting a raised bed, I recommend the end of the bed. It will make it easier to access and tend to the crops.

I also love a grid style garden – I use a grid board and measure out each space. I usually plant to the space on each side.

If you have space in the middle of your garden, you can add in between each of your row planted spaces.

You can create several layers of garden bed or you can simply plant all of your garden beds in your garden. This method can be very effective if you have a whole lot of garden beds to plant in.

My first year of gardening and I planted the majority of my row planted beds in the middle. I found that I had too many crops and not enough space and I ended up having to move a lot of vegetables. So I just made another little space in my garden to plant more vegetables.

The key is to make sure you use a good size tool to make the holes and not too much. When you use a big tool, you can easily break the pot and make it difficult to water. You can also damage your pot!

I usually use my gardening trowel. It is a very small gardening tool that is perfect for digging small holes for plants. I use the gardening trowel to hold the plant I want to plant and push it into the hole.

Sometimes, you may need to make two holes. Make the holes at a distance of about 2.5 inches from the edge of the hole.

If you plant your garden and you have to move things around, you can move things out of the garden once you have planted. But before you do that, you should make sure your plants are safe. You should not plant your vegetables in the areas where there are poisonous weeds.

If you plant your plants too close to one another, they may end up competing with each other. You may have to make extra space to allow more air and water to reach the different plants in the garden.

Gardening is a fun way to stay healthy.
