Consider 'Companion Gardening' When Planting

Texas A&M Agrilife

Hunt County Master Gardener Wayne Bowman recommends "companion gardening." He says some plants compliment each other and some do not "play well with others."  For example, okra doesn't need much water, but cabbage does.  Also, plants in common "families," such as potatoes and tomatoes, attract some of the same insect pests or plant diseases.  Also, the Master Gardeners tour of gardens is Saturday, May 15.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
