Years ago when I started gardening it was called Companion Planting. Now it’s called an insectary when we intentionally interplant a vegetable garden with plants and herbs that repel pests, and attract beneficial insects and pollinators. Here, fruit trees were underplanted with Chives and Comfrey, Carrots seeded near Rosemary, the Pine tree needles provide good mulch and protection for Strawberries, and Nasturtium in spring is great to repel aphids. We have the indispensable Catmint, Verbena, Salvia and Fennel, the Perovskia, and there is a mass planting of Lavender and Echium around the perimeter. This pretty habitat for helpful bugs keeps the biodynamic garden healthy.
