  • Description

    Companion planting has been used by vegetable gardeners for generations as an organic way to deter pests. The principle is that many plants have a ‘companion plant’, which when sown together makes for a healthier crop. Tomatoes, for example, can be improved by sowing next to marigolds as greenfly head for the marigolds instead of the tomatoes. In a similar way nasturtiums lure aphids away from runner beans, sage can be used to reduce black fly on broccoli and the scent of mint can confuse pests of carrots.

    The inter-planting of vegetables with flowers and herbs also creates a more characterful vegetable garden like the classic French potager. All you'll need then is a scarecrow.

    Contents include 8 packets of the following seeds:
    - Marigold & Tomato
    - Sage & Broccoli
    - Nasturtium & Runner beans
    - Mint & Carrots

    Only one left!

    The marigolds will self-seed if the flower heads are left on after flowering. This should give you a nice display year after year, but if this is not what you want you should remove the heads after flowering.

    Mint roots are liable to spread, so it is best planted where the roots can be contained, either in a planter or against a wall.
