Is a garden healthier if you plant many different species in it?



  1. 0 Votes

    Gardens benefit from diversity just as farms do. One of the main benefits is that a garden with only a single species of plants is very susceptible to insect problems, as an insect that enjoys feeding on that plant species will invade and feast. However, if there is a wide variety of species, insects that may be problematic to one plant may not be for another. In addition, different plants can help provide shade for each other if necessary and use different resources from the soil, which helps to avoid nutrient depletion.
