Our Companion list and their benefits
Winter Rye: Develops a deep root system that locks in soil nutrients and promotes oxygenation. Great way to add bio-available nitrogen into your compost pile. Cut it young and add to your smoothies!
Germination Temperature: 20°C – 28°C Prefered PH: 5.6 – 6.5 Light: Full sun
Red Clover: The low-growing clovers are very resilient and act as living mulch, encouraging soil friability. All the clovers fix nitrogen, which is released into the local neighboring plants as it decomposes.
Germination Temperature: 10°C – 25°C Preferred PH: 5.5 – 7.5 Light: Full sun
Alfalfa: This metre high grass repels the dreaded lygus bug, while attracting friends to your patch, such as ladybugs, assassin beetles and several predatory wasps.
Germination Temperature: 18°C – 29°C Preferred PH: 6.8 – 7.5 Light: Full sun
Marigold: A companion planting staple, the powerful and pretty marigold repels beetles and leaf hoppers, Mexican beetle and objectionable nematodes. Its buoyant bloom attracts beneficial nectar-eating species.
Germination Temperature: 23°C – 28°C Preferred PH: 5.5 – 7.5 Light: Full sun
Dill: Dill attracts allies like honeybees and hoverflies, ichneumonids and other beneficial wasps. Swallowtail butterfly caterpillars will forgo your cannabis, as they prefer feasting on dill. Spider mites, the curse of the cannabis farmer, despise dill and will stay away in droves. Dill is also an effective repellant for aphids, cabbage looper and squash bugs.
Germination Temperature: 15°C – 22°C Prefered PH: 5.5 – 7.5 Light: Full sun
Chamomile: The carpet of small bright white flowers will always be buzzing with delighted honeybees and hoverflies while repelling mosquitoes and flies.
Germination Temperature: 20°C – 28°C Prefered PH: 5.6 – 7.5 Light: Part Shade/Full sun
Coriander: As a front-line deterrent, coriander repels aphids, potato beetles and the dreaded spider mite and helps attract tachninid flies, hoverflies and a variety of parasitoid wasps that prey on bad bugs or their larvae.
Germination Temperature: 18°C – 21°C Preferred PH: 6.1 – 7.8 Light: Full sun
