Thinking about your Spring garden yet? I am... and one practice I plan to experiment with this year is companion planting. That is, I'll be thinking about how some plants benefit the growth/survival of others, and placing them accordingly. The most user-friendly resource I've found so far is a chart on Wikipedia (which looks to be well-sourced); our writer ziggy has also written about companion …
