Description

Learn how to incorporate three sisters planting into your home garden. In this tip and trick, Russel Smith talks about how corn, beans, and pumpkin can help each other grow, all the while saving room in your garden. Each of these plants have something that they can provide for the other plants. The corn provides a trellis system for the beans. The beans are able to grow up the corn and then hang off of them. The by-product of beans is nitrogen, which goes into the soil and provides nourishment for the corn. The pumpkin is systematically planted between the rows of corn and can provide shade with its wide, broad leaves. This also helps keep the weeds down. Although pumpkin was used for this video, squash can also be used as well. Don’t forget to check out our other videos to see how you can use three sisters planting for raised beds.
