Do you know what vegetable you should never try to grow with your carrots?
What vegetables would cause suffering to your radishes?
The answers to these and many more questions are right inside this app. Companion Planting is an indispensable aid for busy 'grow-your-own' vegetable gardeners.
Gardeners know that some vegetables grow better in the company of certain others (companion plants). And some plants are real enemies and should not be planted in the same vicinity.
But unless you have extensive experience with vegetable gardening, how do you know what to plant where? And even if you do have knowledge, it can take hours to work out the best layout of your plants in order to avoid problems and optimize growth.
WITH COMPANION PLANTING AT YOUR FINGERTIPS, WORKING OUT NEXT YEAR'S VEGETABLE PLOTS CAN BE DONE IN A FEW MOMENTS.
Just search for a vegetable you would like to grow and see a comprehensive list of plants that it prefers to grow with and a list of those to avoid. Add the vegetable to your plant list and when you have added all the veg you want to grow, just press the 'Find Companions' button, and the app will magically arrange your vegetables into plots for you, carefully avoiding putting plant enemies together in the same plot! You can even save your plots for future reference, and change them around if you prefer.
Nearly 60 common home grown plants.
Includes vegetables, herbs and fruit.
A comprehensive database of companions and incompatible plants
Ability to save and edit your own plots for future reference.
