Companions for Watermelon?
I am planting a couple of Sugar Babies watermelons and a couple of Jubilee watermelons this year and would like to plant some companion plants with them. The Sugar Babies I am planning to run their vine up the garden fence, and the Jubilee won't be on the fence. I am new to growing watermelons, and am inter-planting and companion planting this year to repel nasty insects. These are the other plants I am planting: Pole Beans, Tomatoes, Squash, Lettuce, Broccoli, Bell pepper, Chives Garlic, Onions, Basil, Dill, Carrots,Spearmint, Cabbage, Sunflowers, Sea Pinks, Maiden Pinks,Verbenas, Marigold, Achilles, Snapdragons, Moss Roses.I pretty well know what companions to plant with most of my other vegetables, but I can hardly find any information on companion plants for watermelons. I would appreciate the benefit of anyone else's experience.
