1) Shelter

Larger plants protect others from the wind or too much sun.

2) Support

Some vegetables can be used as physical supports for others. As an example, pole beans planted with corn use the corn as a trellis.

3) Beneficial Insects

Attracting beneficial insects such as bees help spread pollen.

4) Soil Improvement

5) Decoy Plants

Some plants emit odors that aid in masking the odors of insect-desirable vegetable plants.
