GYG-105 Incompatible Plants in the Vegetable Garden


“Can’t we all just get along?” as the saying goes also applies to many of the vegetables we all know and love to grow in our garden.

Now we have all heard abnout planys that get along well, like Marigolds and Tomatoes, but what about those that have “issues” with certain other plants?

Thats what we talk about in this episode of Growing Your Grub.

Just a few vegetables that have cautionary garden partners are:

  • Asparagus
  • Beans
  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Sweet Corn
  • Onions
  • Peas
  • Peppers
  • Potatoes
  • Tomatoes

    Been gardening for a few years now and I never knew about Marigolds and Tomato, good stuff to know.

    A couple details: mycorrhizal fungi vs bacteria, to get more ladybugs to stay put them out at night, and watch the ants, if they are working your plants with aphids – they are driving off the beneficial insects, so use a borate based ant bait to knock back the ants to get control of the aphids.

    SB 1381 is wending its way through the CA Senate to label GMOs here in CA. Call your senator and ask them to vote for it. We want to know what is in our food because big corporations are doing weird stuff to it.
