  2. Everybody would love and enjoy the companion planting approach! But we must
    learn the most significant factors and useful information inorder to
    produce better crops. Always bear in mind that growing them together is
    very important to know that these plants benefit each other to increase
    it’s higher yields.

    I would also be interested in seeing a video where cabbage and tomatoes
    have a beneficial growing season with each other! I have never attempted
    this, as most, if not all of the information I have obtained about
    companion planting discourages a tomato/brassicas planting plot. The only
    saving grace is you probably end up picking your cold weather cabbage
    before your tomatoes have even started producing, so this may have been
    overlooked, but have the potential to negatively effect the root system.

    As well at 8:39 in this video you display a companion planting chart that
    states Cabbage “really dislikes to be with…” Strawberry and tomatoes. I’m
    not saying it won’t work, I’m more interested in knowing alternate planting
    strategies that people were unaware that do work! Let me know your thoughts.

    we have looked at many diffrent charts and some tell diffrent infomation
    about tomatoes and cabbage some say nothing about cabbage just strawberries
    and the other says to plant them together and the other says keep them
    apart we will plant them next to each other and some far away and truly see
    what is right and wrong

    You make a good point i have looked at 3 diffrent charts and both tell me
    diffrent infomation about tomatoes and cabbage so one says nothing about
    cabbage just strawberries and the other says to plant them together and the
    other says keep them apart. We thank you for bringing this up and I don’t
    have a good answer for this right now.

  9. I have had a lot of luck using companion planting. Putting basil, rosemary,
    and lavender near my lettuce has prevented my lettuce from being damaged,
    whereas my collards, bok choy, and peas are getting nibbled on since I
    didn’t have enough companions for them. I think I put that in an update
    video a week or two ago. At 1:55 or so you mentioned cabbage and tomatoes
    as companions, I was always under the impression that brassicas and
    solanancae didn’t mix. I have never tried it though.

    You bring up a good point the cabbage most time are picked befor tomatoes
    are planted

  11. It seems there are certain rules that are universal and other that seem
    like it works for some and other have different opinions. Have you been
    growing cabbage and tomatoes together? If so and you have pictures I would
    say post a video about it. It might also be that in certain locations the
    pests are more likely to do harm, or some might have noticed stunted growth
    or poor flavor. I think the whole area of companion planting could do with
    some scientific scrutiny.

  12. Thanks for the video Joey and Holly.
