How close is ‘close to’? I was thinking of planting pumpkin in a bed that is next to a bed with potatoes. The beds are 50 cm apart but I have wondered how define next to or close to in companion planting theory

Just consider that some pumpkin plants need up to about 8m wide garden bed to sprawl out.
