I'm just after watching an episode of real gardens that was about interplanting. Its not something I've ever though of doing & now would like to. I'm just looking for some ideas. I'm planning a good amount of sunflowers, would peas & beans grow up them? also what about the veg plot what works well with what?

Hi

All I know to date is`to plant mint with`beans and some onions with`the carrots to repel flies. There's also something about nasturitium flowers but Im not sure what it is Smile

Google 'companion planting' and you'll find loads and loads of information and suggestions. (Wikipeadia have a fairly comprehensive list of companion plants.)
