The 10 Best Companion Plants for Your Fall Vegetable Garden

From peanut butter and jelly to paint and brushes, some things work better when they’re together — like companion plants. Companion planting is the gardening method of strategically growing certain plants near each other so that one (or both!) thrives more than they would alone. While the benefits of companion plants — such as better soil nutrient quality, fewer pests and even better flavour — can be a boon to your garden any time of year, we love how growing certain pairs of plants together can help keep your fall garden bountiful

While the best plant pairings may take some trial and error depending on your garden’s unique factors (like location, soil conditions and seasonal temperatures), certain veggies, herbs and even flowers tend to be good bets in the autumn. Here are 10 of our favourite companion plants to try in your vegetable garden this fall.
