well, it isn't mine yet, but will be soon.

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.

But, are there any veggies I cannot grow together due to the kind of soil they need?

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!

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.

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!

Basically the disliked plant if grown in proximity can reduce the yield of the other plant. (From the Australian Organic Gardening Handbook). There is also a list of good companion plants.
