"Three Sisters" Companion Planting for Your Spring Garden

by John Bush

Spring is upon us and that means it’s time to get your hands in the dirt again!  We are starting some seeds and will be expanding the container garden we have in front of our apartment.  We love to use the companion planting method which encourages the placement of beneficial plants next to one another and discourages plants that are antagonists to one another from being planted close.

Check out this Sovereign Living Tip of the Week video about the popular and productive “Three Sisters” companion planting combo. The “Three Sisters” vegetables are corn, beans, and squash. Watch the video to learn why they work so well together.

Pro tip: Be sure to plant your corn first because squash grows fast and can hinder the corn plants from growing.

Share with us in the comments your favorite companion planting combination!
