Companion Planting

Anonymous added on April 5, 2014 | Answered

I want to know if I can plant strawberries, borage, and caraway together? If so, what is the best process to start and maintain this garden? I have a 10x4 area that faces the west by my apartment and it's next to a concrete wall on one long side.

Yes, you can grow them together. Borage and strawberries work especially well together, as the blooms of borage help bring pollinators to the area. I would place the tallest plants (borage) at the back with the caraway next and then the strawberries. Have you considered a raised bed? This often works well in smaller areas. Here are some article that should help with growing these plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/strawberry/growing-strawberry-plants.htm, https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/borage/borage-herb.htm, https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/caraway/caraway-growing.htm
