Q.How Far Apart Should Vegetables Be Planted So They Don’t Affect Each Other (ie. Tomatoes & Cabbage)?
I read that certain vegetables can have adverse effects on each other, namely tomatoes do not like cabbage or pole beans near them or sweet peppers and hot peppers will cross pollinate and make the flavors go off. Looking to find out what a safe distance apart would be since I’m working with a small garden.
