The Companion Plant That Can Keep Pests Off Of Garden Peppers
Green onions are an excellent choice for companion planting with pepper plants, offering a natural way to ward off common garden pests without resorting to
chemical pesticides.
These onions emit a potent aroma that repels nuisances such as green peach aphids, slugs, cabbage worms, and even larger animals that could harm the garden, like deer and rabbits.
Specifically, green peach aphids are known to target peppers, causing significant damage by feeding on the plants. This results in stunted growth and the spread of diseases.
Planting green onions either as a border or interspersed among pepper plants allows gardeners to tap into their pest-repellent properties, thus naturally safeguarding the peppers.
