hanging vegetable gardenWhen you start planning your vegetable garden, you can help your veggies by planting them with other vegetables that will help support growth. Here are some things to think about as you start to get ready for your companion veggie planting plan.

Choose the Vegetables You Want to Plant

The first thing you need to do is decide which vegetables to plant. Different vegetables go well with different companion plants. Planning out your crops before you dig into layout design will help you organize your planting based on which plants grow best together.

Consider the Timing of Planting

Once you decide what you want to plant, think about when your seeds need to go into the ground. Most vegetables have a specific time frame for planting, and your companion veggies need to line up with that time frame, too. Knowing which veggies to plant and harvest together will help you decide when to start your planting.

How to Care for Your Veggies

Different veggies need different care methods, including which kinds of soil they need, how often they get watered, and even which chemicals are harmful to growth. Thinking about how to maintain your plants will help you decide the which veggies to pair together to promote growth.

Think about How You’ll Use Your Veggies

Once you’ve harvested the veggies from your garden, what are you going to do with them? Companion veggies can be a great way to make sure you have all the veggies you need for your favorite recipes.
