Plants That Do Well Together in Pots

This post covers which plants go well in a pot together! Photo Credit: Reed Petersen.There are a number of combinations of garden plants that do well together in pots. Here are 10 combinations:
  1. Sunflower, squash and peas. Similar to the three sisters that were planted by the native Americas when the Europeans first settled in America.
  2. Two peppers do well in pots. They also do well planted together in the garden.
  3. Combinations of herbs, such as Basil, Rosemary and Thyme.
  4. Edible flowers such as pansies work well with shorter herbs.
  5. Cucumbers can be trellised and grown in pots. Plant dill in the pots for a pickle combination.
  6. Red potatoes in the bottom of the pot and peas on the top, makes a good combination. Crowd the potatoes to keep them small.
  7. Lettuce, Kale and Spinach is a nice salad combination.
  8. For a spicier salad try arugula, cress and mustard greens like sweet ruby.
  9. I have not tried carrots and radishes in pots. But they work well together in the field
  10. Roma tomatoes and basil go well together.
