Secrets of companion planting for successful gardening. Vegetables and fruits, like people, have natural friends they prefer to be with--and some they prefer to keep away from. Other plants lure harmful insects away from sensitive plants, the way dill attracts hornworms away from tomatoes. And helpers like garlic will drive Japanese beetles right out of the neighborhood. Getting to know the good and bad companions can double the bounty of your garden.
