are carrots and potatoes good garden companion? what about beets?
The companion planting lists that I've found don't mention carrots or beets as being good companions for potatoes. But they don't mention them as being bad, either. What I've seen listed as being good for potatoes are eggplant, beans, lettuce, and cole crops.
We eat a lot of radishes. We plant them right beside the potato rows and space out the planting dates.
Normally, you dont want to companion plant different plants with similar needs. Two root crops are not normally planted together because they are both "needing" the underground space. That said, there are exceptions which work very well in specific situations- radishes to mark carrot rows being one.
