Apple tree companion planting

I have a potted apple tree and would like to plant something under the tree in the same pot. I also have a cat that has to taste everything in my garden, so it needs to be organtic and non poisonous and not attract other cats.

Apples in a Pot
by: Kiwi George

An interesting idea but I would be wary of depleting the nutrients in the pot with additional plants as due to their small volume compared with open ground, pots have a finite amount of of plant food available. If you provide additional nutrients you may be OK but my experience tells me no.

Companion plants for under apple trees
by: Ali

Mulch is best, otherwise I would suggest herbs are your best bet. In particular from the onion family, as these are not attractive to cats. Chives, garlic and onions. Also nasturtiums have a peppery taste, and are good companions for most plants and look good in tubs.
