Helpful Tip from the Garden Geeks: The best companions ever? Tomato and Basil! Though basil will grow anywhere, plant it next to a tomato plant, and this fragrant herb will fight off tomato pests and encourage the fruit to grow large and juicy. Then when they are ready eat thick slices of tomato with fresh basil and mozzarella cheeses. A favorite side dish at any Mediterranean table.
