Vegetables Love Flowers by Lisa Mason Ziegler



Growing up in the south and in the country I have always seen vegetable gardens with some flowering plants mixed in. I never really thought about why. Now I know. Did you know that certain flowering plants can keep bugs off your fruits and vegetables? By mixing a few flowers in with your garden you can keep a lot of chemical treatments out of your food by letting the plants get rid of the bugs and even the animals who want to munch on your other plants.

The book is filled with some awesome pictures of the the Authors own garden showing the placements of the flowering plants among the food bearing plants. She goes in depth on how these flowering plants rid your garden of the pests. Certain plants help with certain bugs so you want to make sure to have those flowering plants next to the fruit or vegetable instead of across the garden from them.

The author also talks a lot about her cut flower buisness and how she is having the best of both worlds.  This books is great for me I live in Florida where there are some of the craziest bugs you have ever seen. Maybe this year and the years to come my garden will be a lot healthier and will produce more and be beautiful all at the same time.

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
