Plant friendships, imagine if you were stuck in the ground next to a plant that attracts bugs that eats your leaves, etc.

Some plants love living next to each other, others have different soil types so don’t really like living next to each other.

Plant flowers near fruit bushes/ trees and vegetables because they attract pollinating insects.
