Abstract:
Companion planting is based on the idea that certain plants can benefit others when planted in near
proximity. The scientific and traditional bases for these plant associations are discussed. A companion planting chart
for common herbs, vegetables, and flowers is provided, as is a listing of literature resources for traditional companion
planting. An appendix provides history, plant varieties, and planting designs for the Three Sisters, a traditional
Native American companion planting practice.
