Crop Rotations in raised beds

Posted: 09/08/2012 at 21:04

Thanks for all the great advice, especially Frank.  I will do that frank.  If I out in an extra bed of say japanese onions this September, can I then following on with red and white onions next spring before leaving the bed fallow or growing the green manure in its place for a season or would I have to leave it fallow or use green manure that following spring instead, before planting onions late spring?

Is it best to compost these little blighters or compost.  Mares tail is best binned obviously, but am I asking for twice as much weed next year if I compost the rest of my weeds from my allotment?  I'm taking them to the tip at present - any thoughts would be appreciated.

My raised bed crop rotation consists of Bed 1: Brassicas

Bed 2 Legumes and onions, strawberries

Bed 3 salad, parsnips, sweet potatoes, carrots, radish

Where in my rotation could I add another extra raised bed of white red and japanese onions, as I dont have enough room in my present bed of legumes to grow enough onions?
