Take care in planting. Some things do not like being planted with or close by other things. Lambs ear is a gentle plant, and easy to take care of, however..it has other plants that do not like it so well. Plant it at a distance from other plants, and plant the other dislike plant such as fennel out closer to the lamb's ear.
Corn is long known to be a favorite of squash and beans, and they will grow quite well, on the same row with each other.

Tomatoes love roses, and will do very well, in tha vacinity of roses.
Do not plant garlic with anything that will take on the galicky taste.
Pepper, although delicious, and great with your foods, does have a tendency to pass on it's heat to anything planted close by it. Don't plant bell peppers or banana peppers close to it, since they will take on the same heat and will blend in with the jalapenos or other hot pepper, and your seeds will not come out true to nature.
Pumpkins, squash, gourds, melons, and cucumbers should have their own private beds, so they don't end up blending with other veggies of the same nature.
Tomatoes especially heirloom, should each have thier own individual space, to prevent blending with other tomatoes. Seeds blended won't come up true to nature.

A small area, can be set aside for lamb's ear, by using bricks or other means. Some people even like to grow them in pots. I have never had lamb's ear to become invasive, however, depending on your area, i am sure that some people may have had such a problem.

Now I have to sat that I really enjoyed this blog today.

Should red plants or vegetables (like tomatoes) be grouped together?

I recently noticed red cardinal birds surrounding themselves only near red leafy plant trees. Great blog!

Tomatoes like garlic and roses. They get along particularly well together. Cucumbers and squash like corn, and do very well growing in the same rows or patch. The cucumbers or squash will also run up the corn stalks, making it much easier to harvest them. The corn doesn't seem to mind at all.

The color of the vegetable has nothing to do, in relation, of how it gets along with it's neighbor. For instance you would not want to plant cucumber with squash or melons, because one will take over the taste and the whole structure of the other. Hot peppers should not be planted with or close to bell pepper, since the bell pepper will definitely not come out true to nature, but will come out hot.

Thanks BeewitchingItems, glad you enjoy. I hope to have a lot more on here, now that it is spring time, my favorite time of the year.

Actually cardinals will land on most any type of plant that is strong enough to hold them. They..like us, also like the spring time, and do enjoy the garden as much as we do, while they are looking for that special nesting spot.
