    Question of the Week

    I grow a variety of veggies in large pots (‘townhouse farming’). I am reading up on garlic as I’d like to add it to my gardening adventures. Since my growing space is limited to large pots, is there something the garlic should NOT be planted with? Or perhaps something that would make a good bunkmate? I grow lots of tomatoes, strawberries, potatoes, hot peppers, herbs, more herbs, and spring peas. I appreciate your time!  Get the answer »
