Basil with tomatoes are not only delicious and easy as a dish but they are also a dynamic duo as growing partners in the garden. Crops or plants that do well together are part of a concept called companion planting. We touched on this in a former blog post, but it’s worth mentioning again (at least we think it is). There are certain plants that support each other as they grow. On the flip side, there are also plants that shouldn’t be hanging out together--one such example are, peas and garlic or onions, which do not take well to one another. Mapping out your garden to take advantage of companions (and avoid plants that bully others) will take your garden experience to the next level.
We provide clients an individualized garden map and guide based on their garden goals. Every time we hand over a client their garden map and guide for each vegetable or herb they selected, their eyes open wide and their smile is even bigger. One client even started crying he was so happy to receive his map and guide for his six garden beds. Now why would one start crying with tears of joy about a garden map and guide? Although gardening is fun and rewarding, we also know that it can be so overwhelming! Many of the resources you can find are geared toward farmers and gardeners with years and years of experience. That’s where we come in. We are here to support our gardeners by sifting through the overwhelming information and providing a garden experience that is fun and worry-free. We do this by building custom cedar garden beds, testing and making your soil garden ready, creating garden maps and guides all while building our community through our subscription-based newsletter. The newsletter guides our gardeners every step of the way to growing a healthy garden. We coach gardeners through watering, pruning, pest & disease management and everything that Mother Nature tosses our way. Whatever may arise, you will know that we are in this together. Once harvesting begins, we look forward to sharing our favorite recipes. We want you to be part of our Peas, Love and Parsley Garden Community too!
