Fennel Doesn’t Have Friends: A Guide to Companion Planting

If you are like us, you enjoy growing, harvesting and eating home grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs.  As we have transitioned to gardening entirely organically at Tilly’s Nest, we have come to learn of some fascinating gardening techniques that can help you get the best from your plantings.  One such technique is companion planting.  Companion planting involves placing plants that can benefit from one another adjacent to each other the garden.  It also involves keeping some plants far away from one another, as they can be detrimental to one another’s growth.  In fact, this year is my first year growing fennel. I picked up one bulb and sadly, it has no home. I will have to plant it in a container.
