I am new to this forum and relatively new to gardening. I have made 6 raised beds for my vegetables to be rotated which are divided as follows:
Bed 1: Potatoes: Aubergine, pepper, potato, tomato
Bed 2: Peas and beans
Bed 3: Brassicas
Bed 4: Marrow: Artichoke, lettuce, sunflower, corn, melon, watermelon, cucumber, courgette, marrow
Bed 5: Roots: Carrots, beetroot, spinach, celery, dill, fennel, parsley, parsnip
Bed 6: Onion: Chives, garlic, onion
My question is that which of these beds would benefit from a good layer of farmyard manure in autumn? Different gardeners seem to have different opinions, some say for instance that brassica, onion, and root veg especially carrots don't grow well if the soil is too rich. Others say that all veg benefit from fertile soil. Advice would be much appreciated.
