Garden Asparagus Will Thrive Next To This Popular Kitchen Herb
Planting parsley next to your asparagus plant boosts its health and yield as parsley's scent attracts beneficial insects that help control pests like aphids and asparagus beetles.
Successful companion planting requires understanding the plants' needs. Asparagus thrives in sunny, well-drained soil, while parsley benefits from rich soil and regular replanting.
Proper spacing and arrangement are crucial for optimal support between asparagus and parsley. Maintain 6 inches of space between them to avoid competition for nutrients and water.
Interplanting parsley maximizes garden space while strategically protecting asparagus. Avoid planting parsley in rows parallel to asparagus to minimize pest access.
