Combinations and 'Don't plant near'
So this autumn/winter and going into next year, I'm planning to overhaul the garden a bit to accommodate growing as much of my own as I can.
When reading guides, a lot of them state that as well as ideal plant partner combos, there are others which shouldn't be planted by each other (for example, Basil will kill Sage, don't plant garlic by beans or peas).
I am wondering what 'near each other' is defined as? I have quite a small garden, but there are separate areas of soil to use (hardscape separations, and herbs will be in pots.
Cam anyone shed any light? I have some garlic coming in the next week or two (Lautrec) but would also like to maybe sow a bean or two, and there'll no doubt be other 'don't do's' I'll come across.
