well, it isn't mine yet, but will be soon.<br><br>
When I get back to the UK I will be the proud owner of a small garden. Ideally I'd like to use half for veg, and half for ..sunbathing.<br><br>
But, are there any veggies I cannot grow together due to the kind of soil they need?<br><br>
I was thinking of some root veg, plus salad stuff too.

There are veggies you cannot grow together due to the fact that they release chemicals that the other doesn't like... I can't do it now but in the morning I'll try and remember to post which veggies are NOT good companions...

Thanks Shewolf!<br><br>
1Vegan, I really have no clue at all at present... All I do know is that the soil quality is apparently not that great, so I know I'm going to have to do quite a bit of work.<br><br>
I'd be interested to see what will grow together first so, so I can plan what to do when I get my hands on it!

I would recommend buying a good herb and veg book and noting what plants are good with what, and what plant needs what type of soil and sun and water...
