All you need to know about companion gardening and planting from garden design to selection of plants, and from mulching to plant behaviour.

Good and bad neighbours: over 200 garden plants and their preferred companions. How many of us really know the value of the plants around us? When you see a dandelion in your lawn, do you see a weed spoiling perfection or do you see a wild salad herb, bursting with vitamins and minerals? There are plants that flourish when neighbours and others that suffer. Some exhaust the soil in which they grow others make a contribution. In this tried and true, practical handbook, Judith Collins will inspire and inform all gardeners beginners through to those who are more experienced.

About the Author

Judith Collins is an experienced gardener (now based in southern New South Wales) and has regularly appeared on ABC radio around Australia.

      Comments about Companion Gardening in Australia:

      This is the third time I have bought this book. It says a lot that the other two copies were lent to friends who were reluctant to part with it. It is a first class reference book for new and experienced gardeners alike with excellent practical information. Easy to read and has convinced my husband that there are solid reasons to plant some types of flowers amongst his vegies and vice versa. I highly recommend it to all.

      Comments about Companion Gardening in Australia:

      I have two raised veggie beds that I keep as full as I can with seasonal veg. Being keen on organic solutions to pest control (as well as having a mix of veggies and flowering plants in each bed), I have found this little book invaluable. So if you'd like to reduce or eliminate your use of harmful chemicals around your home-grown food, this is a must-have resource for you!
