Product description


"[Plant Partners] takes a new look at a popular subject that has long relied on folklore and conjecture rather than research." -- Margaret Roach, The New York Times

"Plant Partners offers more than just specific plant pairings; it encourages us to think about the relationships between plants, so that we can grow our best garden ever."
-- Jeff Gillman, PhD, Director of the UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens and best-selling author of The Truth about GardenRemedies and Decoding Gardening Advice

"Finally, a science-based book that addresses the 'companion planting' concept of how and why plants can - and really do - play a tangible role in helping to create healthier, more productive vegetable gardens. Plant Partners is a fun and fascinating read. It is well-researched and Jessica Walliser's ability to pack so much useful information into this book just adds to the experience. I enthusiastically recommend this book!"
-- Joe Lamp'l, executive producer and host of Growing a Greener World

"Plant Partners takes the age-old concept of companion planting and adds a modern, scientific rigor. You'll better understand the true reasons to companion plant and why certain combinations work on a scientific basis. I guarantee you'll learn something you never knew within the first 10 pages of the book."
-- Kevin Espiritu, author and founder of Epic Gardening

"Those who know what to expect from Jessica Walliser's previous work will not be disappointed in this important book. Here, in easy-to-understand language, is the science-based knowledge vegetable gardeners need to make informed choices when combining plants. Who knew I should be planting nasturtiums with my summer squash? This book can turn your favorite hobby into a way to make the planet a better place."
-- James Baggett, senior editor, Garden Gate magazine

"For over a decade, Jessica Walliser has been my go-to resource for information on beneficial insects, pollinators, and companion planting. Plant Partners is a fresh look at a traditional topic. It approaches the subject of companion planting through the eyes of science and is an approachable, fascinating read. As you learn the many, many benefits to pairing plants, you'll look at your garden in a whole new way. Plant Partners is set to become a new garden classic."
-- Niki Jabbour, author of The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener and Growing Under Cover

"A well-supported and helpful look at the practice of plant partnering... Walliser's lively guide will aid many a horticulturally minded reader."
-- Publisher's Weekly
