    I like knowing which companions are good or bad but would love to know why e.g. chemical secretions or attracting the same pest, as I find this very interesting, or to be pointed in the direction I could find more info for myself as the companion planting chart linked is great for telling you which plants to do together but I’d like to find a resource so I can learn for myself why and take these experiments a bit further than say just doing as the chart tells me.

    Are you saying that instead of planting in traditional rows, to plant (for example) tomatoes beside a companion and alternate?

      Yes. So as an example if you still picture a row, you could plant a tomato, then a few basil plants, and peppers. Then another tomato and so on. The idea is that if there is space between the tomatoes, then a pest that enjoys those would have to move further to find another tomato and be more likely to just stay on that plant instead of spreading further. Whereas if the tomato plants were so close together that the leaves touched, its easy for all of them to be infested.
