Companion Planting Gardening Guide for Beginners: The Ultimate Science-Based Guide to Successful Gardening Through Companion Planting for Healthier, Mighty, and Bountiful Tiny Farm
What a hoot of a read! Ninon McKeon’s book on companion planting is a prize-winner as he takes us through the quirks of plant relationships with a delightful touch of humor.
Who would’ve thought that sunflowers and corn make terrible neighbors? Not only do sunflowers gobble up resources, stifling smaller plants, but they’re also guilty of releasing toxic chemicals that throw potato growth off balance.
This book doesn’t just point out the bad apples in the garden; it provides solutions, too. McKeon offers tips on encouraging plant compatibility, turning potential foes into allies in the garden’s microcosm.
His inclusion of the “three sisters fables” adds a delightful touch.
I love how McKeon shares knowledge and a rich family history of gardening. Inspired by his mother’s green thumb in a challenging soil environment, he peppers the book with fascinating insights.
He emphasizes that understanding why plants do or don’t get along is just as important as knowing what each crop needs to thrive.
Good companion planting techniques can boost yields by up to 25 percent. The practical advice offered can make a real difference in your garden’s productivity. This is one I will refer to time and again!

Kelly Reed’s ingenious and practical approach to regrowing vegetables and fruits from store-bought produce is a game-changer for anyone on a budget.
I love her ideas of dealing with weeds and using natural ‘spillers’ (peppermint geranium), fillers (sage and chervil), and thrillers (rosemary and parsley) to landscape containers.
The Regrower’s Handbook can positively impact your life, wallet, and the environment by transforming your grocery cart into a green revolution! What a great Xmas gift it would make, too!
Kudos to Kelly for this beautiful book!
