Q.Helpful Planting

Anonymous added on April 18, 2011 | Answered

I have a small raised garden and I need to plant as many things together as possible with the idea of pest control in mind. What can I plant with peanuts – watermelons,  squash, potatoes, etc?

I recommend an all natural plant that wards of many a vegetable loving bug.I plant simply marigolds between my rolls of vegetables. If I do see a problem the only thing I would ever consider using is a dilution of teaspoon of dish soap along with a teaspoon of baking soda. Spray this combination after have shaken well allover plants. leave be. next day rinse or spray with just water. next day solution again. Also planting with shredded paper or saw dust helps with these problems as well. You could also use a strip of thin flat copper around base out outskirts of vegetable bed. This will keep slugs away.
