It has long been observed, by farmers, gardeners and botanists alike, that some plants seem to affect other plants growing near them – both favourably and unfavourably. By taking account of these relationships, farmers and gardeners can improve the quality of food and flowers, reduce losses from pests and disease, drought and frost, and enhance both work satisfaction and financial profit.


 


Years of experimentation by Richard Gregg and subsequently Helen Philbrick and others resulted in this unique reference book. It offers a detailed and comprehensive A-Z of plants and how they affect each other and their surrounding environment, including the soil, insects and birds.
Helen Philbrick (1910-2011) worked with Richard Gregg and Evelyn Speiden Gregg to experiment with companion planting. She wrote extensively on the subject.


 


Richard Gregg was an early pioneer of companion planting. In the 1940s, he and Evelyn Speiden Gregg used their own garden to experiment with different plants.
