Do you use companion planting alot?
As much as possible. It just helps add some value to the garden visually, as well as different nutrients that come into the garden as well.
With traditional Maori kai, do you companion plant with those at all?
Companion planting in a sense that there’s some things that don’t like other things. So it’s just being aware of what you grow with what. That’s companion planting. Potatoes don’t like to grow with tomatoes or tomatoes don’t like to be with potatoes. So it’s just knowing what likes each other. I guess human nature’s like that. They call it companion planting but some things actually prefer to be with other things.
