Présentation de l'éditeur

The idea of companion planting has arisen in the gardening community in recent years as an extremely viable new take on how plants should situated, grown, and cultivated. Matching certain plants together and separating others, as outlined in studies such as the National Sustainable Agriculture Society's report on the subject that shows each crop with at least three companionable crops and as many as four incompatible crops.

Whether you are planting Tomatoes and Onions or Carrots and Corn, the proper pairing of your plants can have a major impact on your eventual harvest and the quality of your vegetables. This book shows you, the avid gardener, everything you need to know to effectively pair your crops in a way that ensures there are no incompatibilities and that you get the most out of every seed. You will learn the basics of crop rotation and how it has been used since the dawn of cultivation almost 12,000 years ago to maintain the integrity of soil and harvests.

You will learn how companion planting is an extension of this basic format and how it works in tandem with natural conditions and plant minerals to create the best produce. You will learn about how to prepare your garden and how to set the right system in place. You will learn, via a chart and a great deal of detail, about each possible combination, the best possible companion plants as well as which plants are largely incompatible. You will learn about how perennials and shrubs coexist and the fundamentals of companion planting care and seasonal care of your plants. From the top tips and methods for this style of gardening to which plants bring good insects and which ones keep pests away, you will learn everything you need to know to plot out and plant your perfect garden.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Grow more, grow bigger with companion planting! 24 janvier 2011
Par Vicki Liston - Publié sur
Do you have a green thumb? Or is it more of a black thumb of death? If you just can't get your garden to grow, author Dale Mayer says it may not be you at all. In her book, "The Complete Guide to Companion Planting", she explains how the specific pairing of certain plants can have either a positive synergistic effect or a disastrous one, depending on what plants you try and grow together in the same space. And the results of two compatible plants can be truly amazing!

Mayer begins her book with a conceptual explanation of companion planting, along with some history and biological benefits to this type of gardening. She tackles such subjects as good and bad critters, garden maintenance, and fertilizing. She also explains how easy it is to start a garden, whether you have a large space in which to grow or only a fence line or patio. The remainder of the book focuses on a myriad of herbs, vegetables, annuals, perennials, wildflowers and weeds, bulbs, tubers, rhizomes, shrubs, bushes, vines, and fruits. With each of these items, she lists what plants would make good companion matches as well as those plants that won't. These pairings can be based on one plant's ability to enrich the soil for the other or on one plant root's shallow depth with another's deep reach to conserve valuable space. Either way, the results can range from a higher yield to tastier produce, even less space needed, and much more.

Mayer makes it incredibly easy for her readers to simply go to the short paragraph which contains their plant of interest and quickly find what they are looking for without having to labor over long, drawn out passages. This makes the book perfect for not only the beginning gardener, looking to get started without being overwhelmed, but also the experienced one, needing a good reference book and perhaps some fresh, new ideas. Mayer's style flows with a laid back and easy feel, making her information and advice fun to learn. Straightforward and simple, anyone can learn to successfully raise a garden with "The Complete Guide to Companion Planting".

I used this book this past summer to plan my garden. I had the most productive garden ever. I use raised bed gardens and have only 2 small plots, one 4x4 and one 4x6. We had so many cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers this year that I was giving away huge bags to friends and coworkers after putting up more than we will eat in a year.
Knowing what plants will compliment each other when growing made the difference.

This book is a must have if you want to do companion gardening. To put the knowledge in the book to work in your garden lends to the best usage of restricted gardening spaces. Your garden will look great, a little wild sometimes, but when all is said and done a riot of colors, textures and visual pleasures.

I do a lot of gardening. I love companion planting when it works. The book is informative but I was looking for more then it offered. If you already know about this kind of gardening then this book is review, but if you are a beginner to companion planting then this book will be a primer for you.

Are you interested in becoming a gardener? The Complete Guide to Companion Planting gives you a basic understanding of what vegetables and flowers to use.

You'll be informed by the history of companion planting, and where to place your garden. You'll learn the biological benefits of combing plants, how to pick out your plants, where to plant, and ways to feed your garden. There are chapters on companion herbs, annuals for your garden, companion perennials, wildflowers and weeds, bulbs, tubers, and rhizomes, shrubs, bushes, and vines, and companion fruits.

With organic vegetables becoming popular, and the prices of vegetables going up in the grocery stores, it is no wonder why gardening is becoming a popular hobby. My favorite chapter 3 is my favorite. It lists the insects and bugs that you do and do not want in your garden. Author Dale Mayer has written a wonderful guide to new and advanced gardeners.
