Hey there, fellow gardeners!

My name is Mellisa and I’m proud to welcome you to my gardening website.

Gardening has been a passion of mine ever since early childhood when my grandparents introduced me to the wonderful world of plants, I still clearly remember the joy of planting and, later, harvesting my first plant.

Granted it was just a tomato, but the pride I felt stuck with me and developed into a lifelong love for gardening.

Fast forward almost 30 years and I still find immense pleasure in tending my garden and in helping others grow and care for their own plants.

About Companion Planting

I created this site because I wanted to create a place where I can meet like-minded greenery enthusiasts and share my experience and knowledge and help novice gardens avoid some rookie mistakes and feel the same joy I feel every day as I tend my garden.

Countless hours of digging in the soil and caring for all kinds of different plants helped me develop an understanding of how the garden functions and learn the best ways to make plants thrive.

So, I’ve decided to put my expertise to good use and create this resource where you can, in one place, find everything you may want to know about gardening.

On this site, you can expect to find tips and guides on a wide range of topics, from choosing the right soil and watering to pest control and disease prevention.

I want to assure you that the information you find on this site is accurate and up-to-date.

I’m passionate about fact-checking and regularly consult with some of the best gardening experts to ensure that the content I share with you is of the highest quality.

However, I want this site to be more than just a mere source of information.

I also hope that it will serve as a place to gather and foster a community of fellow gardening enthusiasts where we can share our passion for plants and the knowledge we gathered through years of tending our plants.

Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just starting, I invite you to join me on this journey to discover the beauty and wonder of the world of plants and greenery.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you’ll stick around to explore everything that this website has to offer!
