Alain Darroze shows you these plants which are able to coexist in your spaces, as they do in his personal garden where the varieties multiply without interfering.

Borage and dill
Borage is an annual honey plant whose flower is often used to decorate salads, omelettes and meats. It is therefore highly coveted by bees and bumblebees who prefer it before going to the tomatoes. Borage coexists very well with dill which is part of the same family as carrot: the umbelliferae. Its unusual taste encouraged cooks to use it with salmon. It charms many small parasitic wasps that use the caterpillars on dill as nests.
Tomato and basil
Another notable cohabitation: tomatoes and basil. In addition to not hampering their development, the basil provides a special flavor to its neighbors, which will only be better during tasting.
Bean and corn
Finally, there is a real symbiosis between beans and corn. Indeed, while growing together, these two plants contribute to the well-being of the other. Bean root nodules give off nitrogen, which is used by corn to become more robust. For its part, the latter plays the role of tutor for the bean, and protects it with its large leaves. The cohabitation of plants no longer holds any secrets for you. Do not hesitate to plant these varieties side by side, and get a sublime space, like the garden of Alain Darroze.
