Companion Plants for Fruit Tree Guilds

 In Uncategorized

A “Fruit Tree Guild” is a community of plants that surround the fruit trees. These plants are selected to support your fruit tree with roles such as accumulating nutrients, fixing nitrogen, and attracting beneficial insects. Healthy plants, release sugars into the root zone feeding the soil food web beings, who in turn feed your trees.

I planted this one as the herb layer around a pear tree in a full sun location. I lean towards plants that are native, drought-tolerant, medicinal, pollinator attractors, or beautiful.
