This is my garden design and I'm a beginner so i don't know which plants can be planted with each other so i was wondering if anyone minded to give me advice and comments. Also if you are an expert gardener i was wondering if you can tell me how much yield ill get from each plant.

Here is a great website for "companion planting" vegetable and herbs.

[color=#800080][i]Be cautious planting any plants from the Mint Family. I tend to plant any types of Mints in a bucket with no holes sunk in the ground at soil level. The roots of Mints are runners and can take over a plot in no time at all. Been there done that. :oops: You can lift up the bucket and split it up and share with friends or compost well, while putting a nice piece back in your bucket for next season. I love what you have in mind for planting though, just be cautious of what size plants reach at their maturity. :-)

I second that sage advice on the mint. ;)

I'm really impressed on the design of your garden and I think you garden will look more entertaining and attractive if you add some outdoor decorations like stone sculpture, outdoor lighting or water fountain.
