Here is a list of more suggested companion plants and my own comments about placement or not in my balcony garden this year. If you try these, please report back with a comment with what your experience has been or how the plants are progressing. Thanks!
Waiting for the next batch of seedlings to get a little stronger and then will plant these together.
I planted some sunflower seeds inbetween my cukes but no popping yet. Maybe the birds got the sunflower seeds? After I started to write this a little break from work brought me out to the garden in a matter of hours – there was nothing this morning in their spots – some sprouts have appeared – yipee! Amazing after several days of rain and a couple of warmer days how things progress.
Cilantro (a/k/a coriander)/ALL VEGGIES
Even my dogs want to eat coriander and they are picky eaters!
Decided against growing dill since while I like to use it, it is easy to get at the piata and due to space limits have other more important herbs to grow.
In one of the garden containers are cukes and nasturtium and they seem to be doing well together. Planted a few more nasturtium seeds and will try an experiment in a pot with a ”blue” pumpkin plant (an heirloom variety – how lucky I am to have recd some seeds!) which I expect will spill over and crawl along a large space along with a nasturtium plant. They are not ready to meet yet as they are in their coconut fiber seed bin right now.
Holding off on the radish until august when a dark variety is scheduled for planting.
