Best plants for cucumber and squash.

ShowmemanApril 20, 2005

What are the best plants to plant with squash and cucumbers to repel the squash borer and cucumber bug or bugs. I always get nice producing plants but they soon wither and die. I am Practicing notill with lots of compost and mulch. Any help in this area would greatly be appreciated.

Check out the Companion Planting Forum of August -04. There are many plants for pest control or for repelling listed.
