27 Plants That Don’t Like To Mix It Up – Incompatible Plants!
Most experienced gardeners do a good job in keeping their plants healthy but even with these efforts some plants are just not meant to grow next to the other.
There are many reasons why these plants are incompatible. For instance, some plants do well in certain environments, others require more nutrients.
While others are susceptible to parasites and pests that could be detrimental to other plants. Some plants don’t like to mix with others!
Incompatible Garden Plants
There are plants that grow well together while there are some that seem to hate other plants. Knowing the plants that are not compatible with each other is rather easy provided you follow some basic rules. Successful farms know this secret of companion planting.

Our article outlines a list of incompatible plants that are compiled from the experiences of seasoned gardeners. Some of these experiences are backed with a scientific explanation while others are not.
