How to Combine Different Crops in the EarthBox
« on: January 07, 2020, 12:20:54 pm »
Companion planting may seem simple at first, but you can’t just place any two species in the EarthBox gardening system. You need to know what will work together and what won’t work. If you have planted the wrong combination you could end up with problems in your garden.

EarthBox has a great article “How to Combine Different Crops in the EarthBox”: https://blog.earthbox.com/combining-crops-in-the-earthbox

There are general guidelines for combining crops in the EarthBox:

•   Never overcrowd the system. This is a common mistake folks starting out with the EarthBox for the first time.

•   Combine plants that have similar size and needs.

•   Try different varieties to see what you like best.

There is a section on Combination Successes – this portion of the article goes into detail about what combinations are successful.

Not every plant combination works in EarthBoxes. There is a list of what to avoid planting together.

There are some great combination themes as well. If you like a certain region’s style of cooking, try mixing up some of your favorite plants in one or two combination boxes.
