Companion planting can transform your garden. By encouraging in pollinators and predators with key plants, you can gain a tiny gardening team to do your pest control & pollination, all with the added benefit of supporting British native wildlife by providing habitats and food sources.
In return, their natural behaviours will increase your crop productivity and reduce insect pest numbers. Companion planting was widely used centuries ago in cottage gardens in Britain, but has since declined, as have the numbers of pollinators and predators.
