Post vege garden bed rotation
Does any one else use the rotation system? We've got up to 25 beds (it varies each year on how fit I fell) that we rotate on a 5 bed cycle, it 5 lots of 5 beds.

Anyone got any good planting combos aside from the ususal one from diggers (which I use now) or gardening Aust?

Yeap we do the rotation thing.

- garlic with our apple trees (reduces one of the moths I think)
- pansies with onions (doubles the yields)
- nersterions everywhere you can have them...nitrogeon fixer

Combination not to plant

- Parlsey with Parsnip....I can never tell the difference between the too :)
- Marigolds with Tomatos ..... actually encourage aphids so can be just as much a problem then a positive...

The only other thing we belive in quite strongly, as flowers are just as important as the veggies. Although veggies are more productive in terms of our needs, having a great flowers will make the bees go crazy so will have lots more productivity then if you don't have many flowers.

Anyways, thats my thoughts although it sounds like you have things sorted considering how many beds you have. We have about 5 perminant veggie beds but they are all very long so we get loads of each type of veggie in there.

Hi Gizzy, :D
if you PM me your email address, i can send you a copy of a vege rotation, companion, fruit tree and herb guide i made for my kids' school for them to use.
it is also divided into summer and winter crops, best of all, for Canberra climate ;)

i am the gardener there in my spare time and work with the chef to grow what she needs.

if anyone else wants a copy, PM me.
