Evening all,

I need to plan what to grow in my garden this year but need some help with regards to crop rotation. My bed has only done 2 years and both crops were potatoes, I'm now splitting the area up in to 3 beds for an easy crop rotation in the future.

Any suggestions on what would be best to start off with in each of the 3 beds following the potatoes?

Cheers, Ben.

Do not grow potatoes in the same bed for more than one year in a row.

for three separate crops, use beans and peas (and sweet peas for cutting ) in bed 1

cabbage family in bed two (includes swede and turnip with brassicas)

roots such as carrots, parsnips radishes, and  lettuce,in bed 3

The following year, rotate  . Brassicas usually follow bean family
