Can you plant Tomatoes and Potatoes?
On top of each other. You can graft a tomato onto a potato and get both maters and taters out of the same hill.
I thought taters and maters are a no no together
Thats what I was thinking I want to plant about 2 more rows but I run out of room,so if I still want to plant them they will be close to my Tomatoes.
You're right -they are a no-no together or after one another since both are nightshades and both are host for late blight. I also know they are supposed to be planted a distance from each other, but none of my books say how far is far enough. If blight is a problem in your area, I definitely wouldn't plant them in rows next to each other or even within 40 feet.
Well I asked up at the Garden Center they said they would be ok together.
Do you have a space large enough to try it? I would not do all them that way but like a few plants? I am still leary about it but it could just be an old tale. When you think about it why does it matter? Plants don't know the diff. right
What the deal is I planted 6 rows of Potatoes,really wanted two more rows but I will be getting in to where I'm wanting to plant Corn.So I'm thinking of going the other way.Might be able to put a row of Carrots between them.
Didn't ya ever get those advertisements where they sell plants that are tomato on top and potato underneath?
Try it lets see what happens.
