What I didn't like about the book, and why I gave it four stars instead of five, were the spelling and grammatical errors, which made the book difficult to read.
I would recommend this book to a friend, after informing them of the spelling etc.
Duncan provides a brief history of companion planning which explains its ecological, biological and practical benefits. She also goes into detail as to the best categorizations of garden products and types, which explain compatibility of different types of plants, trees and vegetables as well as what care and feeding goes best with these like species. There is also a list of things to avoid, such as harmful insects, overdevelopment and protecting your garden from the elements. Though the focus of this book is on growing crops, most of the information is common sense knowledge that will undoubtedly contain tips for home and garden enthusiasts as well.
For everything you need to know about gardening in general, Companion Planting by Naomi Duncan is one you won’t want to do without.
The guidelines for companion gardening has been used throughout the world, and and has been documented throughout history. The book offers a chapter about the history of this idea, with examples from different cultures, from China to the indigenous Americas. The author suggests that learning from the past about the best practices is important, because some plants do well when mixed with each other, and other plants actually repel each other. The book lists the benefits of companion gardening, discusses soil and making your own compost, planning the garden and watering it. Then, for each plant—such as apple, apricot, asparagus, basic, climbing beans, beetroot, carrots, celery, chives, cucumber, dill, garlic, leek, lettuce, and others—the book offers winning combinations with other plants, and poor combinations.
