Flowers and Veggie Rhymes for planting.

I ALWAYS forget what shouldn't be planted each year next to each other.  So I decided to not just help myself out, but to help everyone else out as well.

Where catnip attracts cats,

Flea beetles flee.

To plant your carrots, deeply till
But keep them far away from dill.
Beets of red should never bed with beans of green, nor mustard wed.

Onion, garlic, leeks and shallots.
Keep carrot flies away from carrots.

But these pungent bulbs, unseen
Disagree with neighbor bean.

Lettuce is easy to grow, on the average
Except when competing with sunflower or cabbage.

Many vegetables love the potato,
which shuns its own cousins, eggplant and tomato.

Cucumber and Beans, love to be near each other it seems.

Tomatoes, tomatoes where can you grow,
with cucumbers, parsley and asparagus roam.

Corn hates Tomatoes and is happy next to a potato.

Celery likes just about everything, including asparagus.  It is part of the family!

The cabbage is usually friendly but never assume heartily,
They hate strawberries, dill, tomatoes and the broccoli!

Dill is the herb who fights with all.
So grow by itself in a pot that is tall.

Marigolds love a crowd, and keep the aphids from coming around.

Chives are fun and taste good on potatoes,
But like to grow well around greenhouse tomatoes!

Always remember, when the sun is high,
Planting your loved ones from taller to smaller.
Following the sun or just catching the Rays,
Makes your plants happy and grow up taller.

Here are some good links for companion plants.
Love To Know/Gardening

Have fun everyone!

I've heard grandmother & mom repeat some of those, but not all. That's a good collection you've got, there.

You made those rhymes up? Good for you! Looking them over, I think my garden for this year is okay--not negative combinations! Thanks!
