If possible, it is better to take cucumbers into open ground on a manured bed under a film, they will perfectly take root there and give a crop. Tomatoes are best left in the greenhouse..

Peppers

Another greenhouse crop, especially in Siberia and the northern regions, is sweet pepper. They are with tomato belong to the same species - nightshade. Greenhouse compatible, since the conditions of their cultivation are similar.

But there is one in their living together the problem is the microclimate in the greenhouse... Tomatoes love warm but dry air, which means that the temperature for them should be high, but at the same time with good air movement. And pepper, on the contrary, loves warmth and moisture to match the cucumbers.

Some gardeners still grow peppers in the same garden with tomatoes.

At the same time, a "chess" scheme is practiced, which provides sufficient access to light for both cultures.

Peppers benefit from the presence of tomatoes in the neighborhood... The substances contained in them repel aphids, which are very fond of peppers.

Cabbage and salads

They get along well with early varieties of white cabbage, Peking cabbage, which in general used for compacting tomatoesplanting it at their feet. Perfectly tomato will get along with leafy salads.

Radish, onion and garlic

This neighborhood will benefit all cultures.... Onions with tomatoes are planted only those that are grown for greens. With such a neighborhood you need to provide enough light radishes, onions and garlic.

Garlic - a tomato's helper in the fight against late blight... Its curling arrows need to be collected and made from them an infusion for spraying tomatoes for preventive purposes.

Strawberry

Strawberries (strawberries) coexist well with tomatoes in the same room (greenhouse). Both crops do not like high humidity, they requires constant ventilation in order to avoid infection with fungal diseases. Besides, the draft contributes to the pollination of both crops.

Strawberry bushes alternate with planting tomatoes according to the scheme 60 x 45 cm... Wherein strawberry feeding area should be at least 30 x 15 cm on the bush.

Best Crops to Grow with Tomatoes

From what is best to plant in a greenhouse along with tomatoes (tomatoes), you can make a small list:

  • legumes (beans, beans);
  • watermelons;
  • radish;
  • Melissa;
  • celery;
  • parsley;
  • basil.

Melissa and Basil Improve Tomato Flavor... The main thing is to observe the light regime for the neighbors. For this, tomato bushes must be tied up.

Incompatible cultures

  • dill;
  • kohlrabi;
  • fennel.

Vegetables correctly selected for joint cultivation will not only not harm each other, but also will help to increase yields up to 20-25%.

Each vegetable has its own "apartment"

For those who are still trying to grow poorly compatible vegetables in the same greenhouse, there is a way out. it organization of space... What can you plant tomatoes with in a greenhouse? The most "greenhouse" plants are tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and eggplants. Their compatibility is poor, so they should be separate from each other.

If the greenhouse has two entrances from opposite sides, it is easier to place cultures in it. With sufficient width, three beds are made. Tomatoes are planted on the middle - this part of the greenhouse is best ventilated. Peppers are placed on the north side, cucumbers or eggplants on the south side. Although it is better to exclude cucumbers.

If the greenhouse has one door, and on the opposite side there is only a window, crops can be arranged in the following order: tomatoes are planted near the doors, they must be separated from the rest of the area either with a film, or with slate or plywood. The best material is film.

Next, cucumbers are planted, followed by eggplants - both vegetables are very thermophilic and in the middle they will be fine. And last but not least, peppers are planted by the window, they prefer a cooler atmosphere.

Placing not very compatible crops in the same greenhouse you need to be prepared for a slight decrease in yield each of the cultures.

Today, greenhouse manufacturers offer various designs, in particular, indoor ones. With the help of partitions-modules, you can create separate rooms with the desired microclimate in them, which will allow you to combine the "incompatible" in one greenhouse and not think about what to plant tomatoes with.
