This Crop Rotation Guide will help you have a healthy and successful gardening year. Different plants require different nutrients in the soil and they also deplete the soil of certain nutrients. By figuring out the patterns of the various types of vegetable crops, you can use this knowledge to your advantage to have a rotation of crops that balance and feed your gardening soil. A great benefit to your garden for years to come!
I’ve been studying crop rotation ideas in various gardening books and have found that everyone has a different opinion about how to do this.
At first, I was frustrated and overwhelmed at all of the options to choose from. However, I finally chose some ideas from a few of my favorite gardening books and put it all together. My crop rotation guide is clear to understand and very helpful….at the very least, helpful for me. I hope it helps you, too!
My Crop Rotation Guide
This Crop Rotation Guide was updated in December 2019.
For example, after the first year, Group 1 will be moved to the area of the garden where Group 2 had been, Group 2 will move to Group 3’s old location, etc. I hope this makes sense! Add a question to the comment section if you are confused…
