Companion planting is the placement of various crops in close physical proximity to one another so as to symbiotically compliment each others progress. It was widely touted in the 70's as part of the organic gardening movement. It was encouraged not only for pragmatic reasons like trellising, but rather with the idea that different plants may thrive more when close together. It is also a technique used in permaculture, along with mulching, polyculture, and crop rotation.
