Squash Companion Plants

Radish

When I was searching for ways to cure my squash plant (it suffered from powdery mildew) I came across a tip on growing squash. It suggests that you plant radish near your squash and just let the radish bolt. This will somehow repel the Squash Borer. I’m lucky not to have any problems with Squash Borers, just wanted to share the tip.

    I will try this next year. We have terrible trouble with the borers here and they killed all my plants this year.

    @annie: I’m sorry to hear that, I hope radish will keep the borers away. Let us know how it works out for you, my fingers are crossed here 😉 I think I’ll try to do the same here, just in case.
