Companion planting is all about creating plant communities which have mutual benefits to each other.
Find out how at Thompson and Morgans free companion planting guide at: http://www.thompson-morgan.com/companion-planting-guide
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has compiled two downloadable plant lists to help gardeners identify plants that will provide nectar and pollen for bees and many other types of pollinating insects.
To download the lists please visit the RHS website here.
“Herbs are wonderful for containers. Few crops give you so much from so little space. Often just a few leaves can transform a dish. Many also have flowers that attract beneficial insects - bees love chive flowers for example and hoverflies love coriander flowers. If you like herbs and have space for a pot to two, do try growing a few. They are amongst the easiest in containers. And many like mint, chives, thyme and rosemary will return year after year, so you don’t even have to sow them every year, either. All in all, a real winner in small spaces” Source – Vertical Veg
