Companion Plants - Organic Pest Control

Companion plants are a great way to control garden insects organically, without harmful, nasty chemicals. Some companions also provide nitrogen or other organic nutrients.

Companion gardening is the practice of planting two different plants in close proximity to each other. One or both plants helps the other, giving off by products that the other plant needs. Those by products are chemicals and micro-nutrients.

Other beneficial plants provide some protection against insects and planting a few of them near a desired plant will keep the insects away.
