Why mix all these together I hear you ask.......well Sweet Corn and Courgettes/Zucchini are very hungry nitrogen plants and deplete the soil of this very important nutrient. On the other hand the beans (or peas) actually do the opposite and put nitrogen back into the soil....so by planting these together hopefully we will have a happy balance of nutrients. This combination of plants is often referred to as 'The Three Sisters', which is an ancient method of gardening. Sometimes this is done in a mound or hill but I plant all of mine level and it works! http://gardenofyvonne.wordpress.com
