Planting Basil w/ Tomatoes....is there a benefit?
I have had a few "old timers" tell me that planting basil plants close to tomatoes is extremely beneficial to the tomato plant. They said it improved the flavor of the tomato as well as provided a natural barrier for the hornworm. Anyone else have that experience? I am quite new to all this and I did it. I have no insect damage at all to my tomato plants but have not been able to harvest any fruit yet to see if there was a flavor difference. I look forward to your responses.
