Larisa’s Garden Episode 7: Great Bedfellows

Larisa Litvin Video 2 Comments

Plants are like people. Some are repelled at the idea of sharing a bed – they like to have space to spread their roots. Others have a quite nice time sharing their space. However, plants make good bedfellows when one grows, blooms, and is ready for harvest in the early season and the other later. Early seasonal plants will either be uprooted or will burrow their bulbs so deeply into the ground that later season plants have plenty of space to grow and thrive. Save space with the space sharing techniques discussed in Larisa’s Garden!

Takeaway Point

Magical Bedfellows

Combining early and late harvesting plants allow you to use your garden beds for two harvests in one season. Below you’ll find some especially compatible couples:

  • Early – Late
  • Radishes – Carrots
  • Spinach – Swiss Chard
  • Garlic – Leek
  • Green Peas – Fall Radishes

You can also enjoy the beauty of the spring and early summer through planting early-flowering bulbs. Some recommendations include…

  • Crocuses
  • Snowdrops
  • Daffodils
