Companion plants, growing vegetables the natural way

Some plants may benefit from or be harmed by the vicinity of other plants of specific kinds. This is because some species are able to stimulate, or in other cases to repress, the growth of other plants in their immediate vicinity, and to repel damaging insects or attract useful ones.
 Therefore, the various species of crop sown or planted in the vegetable garden must be chosen not only to suit our culinary tastes but also for their potential to provide or receive benefits from the other species around them.
