What's in a name?

The speedwell and the yarrow, two types of flowering plants, are also companions. Companion planting is the science of strategically partnering plants together for mutual benefit. Companion plants, as partners, help each other thrive and grow - providing nutrients, protection, and support.

Just as companion plants make one another stronger, more resilient and help one another to grow, Speedwell & Yarrow helps busy professionals thrive in their careers.
