How close is too close in companion planting ? Thanks

Sorry I had that wrong. I was thinking non compatible plants. Companion planting would be fairly close taking into consideration what area both plant varieties need to produce a decent crop. Like if you were growing beans you would grow marigolds (I don't know if they are companion plants) about 500-600mm away. You don't want one crop over growing the other crop. Generally people plant things too close together - me included.

2-3 meters.
