Just started reading carrots love tomatoes! It is so very helpful with this companion planting.

I have noticed that when you look in all of the books that if they taste good together they plant well together-- I think that is good common sense :)

Basil! You know, generally things that taste good together, grow well together! They enhance each others flavors. <br/> <br/>Additionally, calendula officinalis (pot marigold) will help keep the aphids off of your tomato&#x27;s!

Oh yeah! tasting good and growing good together- so true. Is that why you can put a lot of herbs into one pot? I wonder...
