Interesting Companion planting promotes the idea that certain plants help other plants grow better. I purchased this book for information about companion planting, but it is much more. It includes the care and planting of plants and plant recommendations for many useful things including fly prevention. She discusses all kinds of plants that work well together. It is easy to read, but not particularly easy to use since it is written in paragraph form. Perhaps charts or groups would have been easier to read. I purchased the Kindle edition, but I believe it would have been easier to use in a print edition because I did quite a bit of ‘flipping back and forth.’
