These plants complement each other by giving off scent or chemicals that repel insects, or they may attract beneficial insects that are predators to harmful insects. Some plants return micro-nutrients to the soil that can be used by other plants. Did you know? * Nasturtiums planted with pumpkins, squash and cucumbers deter beetles, aphids and other insects that attack the plants. And what’s more, they are edible! * Carrots and leeks are excellent companions. Leeks repel carrot fly and carrots repel onion fly and leek moth.
