The Best Companion Plants To Grow With Your Potatoes
Potatoes appreciate broccoli’s shallow root systems, which don’t attempt to horde nutrients or crowd other plants that like to settle lower down in the soil.
Like broccoli, cabbage plants don’t steal nutrients or take up too much room. Plant them 18 to 24 inches apart from each other to ensure they have room to grow.
Cauliflower has many of the same aspects as broccoli and cabbage. For big, thick cauliflower heads, give them six to eight hours of sun per day.
Collard Greens
Collard greens are great, non-competitive companion plants to grow with potatoes. To avoid frost, consider growing them inside for the first 4-6 weeks.
Since spuds grow deeper down while kale seeds should only be planted around half of an inch in the soil, both can grow without encroaching on each other.
