Growing vegetables can be rewarding as well as beneficial. However, there are ways of planting that are better than others. Planting some plants together works better than others. For example, planting Marigolds around your garden helps to keep out rodents, like rabbits. Also, planting Marigolds near tomatoes repels the green horn worm. If you haven't experienced what green horn worms can do, they can demolish a tomato plant as fast as over night. Planting Herbs amongst your vegetables is a time tested way of warding off insects without the use of pesticides.

  • Thyme wards off cabbage worm
  • Garlic and Chives help to rid your garden of aphids
