compatible plants vrs crop rotation

I understand very well the crop rotation. Now a days I am reading about compatible crops and there the confusion starts:
"Same family plants don't get together". I sincerely don't know what to do. Please help me.
Thanks
Vivian

Re: compatible plants vrs crop rotation

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by compatible crops but I do know that the basics of crop rotation have been around for thousands of years and it works.

Don't let the idea of "compatible" crops confuse you. Stick to the basics of crop rotation and you won't go wrong.

Thanks for your advise, I will do that.

Re: compatible plants vrs crop rotation

I was thinking about your question a little more and wondered if you meant "companion" planting? If so, then the same answer applies as I originally gave. But some plants which don't fall into a rotation plan can be planted as companion plants. The most well known example is planting marigolds (not a vegetable and not in a normal rotation plan) next to tomatoes and other vegetables which suffer from white fly. Many gardeners are sure that marigolds repel white fly, me included. Marigolds can be planted anywhere you like and in the same position each year if you want.
