Post Vegetable Compatibility 
I was wondering if anyone can give me a link to a website that tells you what to plant with what. I had come across it last year and did not bookmark it. It had charts with where /what veggies should be planted with what. Also discussed what flowers to keep in the garden to keep away the bugs etc.
Thanks!

Post Companion for plants 
Hi,

Here are some links:

Btw in the next big feature rollout I will have a plant database and this will be one of the fields that I hope to populate.

Also I didn't scan through these, but from the book I am now reading, it is not uncommon to have disagreements as to what grows good together. They can all be right, it just depends on WHY they are companions, is it for shading plants that don't like heat, to keep bugs away or because one provides nitrogen and one is a heavy feeder of nitgroten. Sometimes it gets my head spinning.

Thanks,
Roy

Charley's Greenhouse has a booklet that does an OK job of what to plant with what and why. I'm trying to plant compatible stuff together this year, I'll let you know the results. The most interesting stuff to me was what keeps what bugs away....Like nastusiums keep away squash bugs.....

Try www.gardensablaze.com. They have a chart for Companion Planting for Pest control and one for Companion Planting for Increased Yields. They are compact and easy to follow.
