“The Mix and Match Guide to Companion Planting” book review

We live on a farm and raise sheep. We also plant a garden each year. A couple of years ago we built a green house from a kit we bought from Home Depot and had delivered. It is just wonderful to start seeds a little earlier than it is safe to start them out side. But when it is time to plant outside, where to put them? Which will grow well together? Or not? Which will help with insects or other pests? (Rabbits, deer, etc?) And do some plants just like to be near others, or not?

This colorful and functional book has so much information about lots of common and some not so common plants. The pages are cut in thirds- similar to the children’s books that you could make silly pictures, so you can easily determine which plants have similar characteristics or various functions.

This book is good for beginners or more experienced gardeners. The gardeners at my house were quite pleased with the book, its information and ease of use.
