Description

Fight garden pests and increase your yields the natural way with this tried and true technique!

Planting vegetables and flowers together is one of the oldest ways to create ahealthy, bountiful garden; but there's more to the method than you might think. Vegetables Love Flowers walks you through the ins and outs of companion planting, from how it works to which plants go together and how to grow the best garden for your climate. 

Alongside gorgeous garden photography, you'll also learn about:
  • Seed-starting, growing, and harvesting
  • How to make garden flower bouquets, with "recipes" for various arrangements
  • How to attract beneficial creatures to pollinate your garden and prey on its pests
  • Pesticide-free pest-control measures
  • Composting heaps and bins
With the right information and some careful planning, you can help your plants thrive—and beautify your garden in the process.

At the same time, Lisa has steadily built a speaking career leading presentations and workshops for garden clubs, master gardeners, commercial growers, and other groups centering on her simplified organic gardening methods.
