Hi All -
I’m wiling away the winter hours dreaming about my first outdoor grow. I am looking at prepping five sites for five Gold Leaf plants. I intend to dig holes for 50L bags of soil as a first step… I’ll figure out the soil eventually but something sandy, etc.
What I am wondering about is companion plants. I am planning on planting clover around the base of the plant, and was thinking of adding in some other companion plants to help keep pests away (marigolds or something).
Do any of you use companion plants if planting in the ground, and if so, which ones? Why?
Also, how do you go about prepping your ground/soil? This is a new experience for me so I need to learn a lot (which is why I am doing my research now).
I intend to germinate and veg the plants inside for a few weeks then transplant them outside.
