Companions for random edibles

meawea(7a)May 4, 2014

This is my first year trying container gardening so in an attempt to maximize my space and productivity I tried to choose things that would work well together although I've also been given random things that may upset my plans.

These randoms are: purple sage, red veined sorrel, arugula, epazote, petite sweet peppers and three different kinds of lavender.

I've currently got some rosemary, thyme, dill, sweet basil, squash, beets, lettuce, radishes, mizuna, and carrots, all mostly sprouting. When it comes time to transplant, what can now go with what? Besides lettuce, radish, carrot, beet combos. Those were easy for me to figure out :)

Red veined sorrel grows aggresvely into a big clump here so needs room. Lavenders generally form a 2ft or larger bush which may shade smaller plants. I'd research each one's mature size and water needs to decide combos.
