    [synopsis] => Companion planting has a long history of use by gardeners, but the explanation of why it works has been filled with folklore and conjecture. Plant Partners delivers a research-based rationale for this ever-popular growing technique, offering dozens of ways you can use scientifically tested plant partnerships to benefit your whole garden. Through an enhanced understanding of how plants interact with and influence each other, this guide suggests specific plant combinations that improve soil health and weed control, decrease pest damage, and increase biodiversity, resulting in real and measurable impacts in the garden.



 This publication conforms to the EPUB Accessibility specification at WCAG 2.0 Level AA.

   Reflecting the latest research on how plants influence and communicate with each other, Jessica Walliser offers a research-based guide to companion planting-a gardening method that uses strategic plant partnerships to improve crop yields and outsmart pests.

 Index Companion planting gets a science-based reboot!



 Intentionally growing certain plants together to benefit the whole garden now has science to explain its success. Jessica Walliser's new vision of an old tradition is built around a modern understanding of the marvelous web of connections happening in the garden and how to use them to create real and measurable results.



 Discover dozens of well-studied partnerships that offer fresh strategies to:

 - Break up heavy soils

 - Combat weeds and disease

 - Lure pests away

 - Attract specific beneficial insects

 - Improve pollination "[Plant Partners] takes a new look at a popular subject that has long relied on folklore and conjecture rather than research." - Margaret Roach, The New York Times



 "Plant Partners offers more than just specific plant pairings; it encourages us to think about the relationships between plants, so that we can grow our best garden ever."

 - Jeff Gillman, PhD, Director of the UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens and best-selling author of The Truth about GardenRemedies and Decoding Gardening Advice



 "Finally, a science-based book that addresses the 'companion planting' concept of how and why plants can - and really do - play a tangible role in helping to create healthier, more productive vegetable gardens. Plant Partners is a fun and fascinating read. It is well-researched and Jessica Walliser's ability to pack so much useful information into this book just ad
