 These tables, each representing a bed, can be used to arrange rows in a garden.  The beds are then rotated each year, see example at end. Each Bed groups compatible plants, and allows some exceptions by using a row to divide plants in the same group that may not be compatible with a single plant.  It also allows for Beds touching each other and keeps non-compatible plants separated by at least a row of a plant that could go in either bed. 

Mix flowers and herbs among the vegetables.  A few rules to keep Basil from Onions and Beans, but Tomatoes like it, so plan accordingly. 

Items in Bed One include Tomato, Basil, Celery, Pepper, Parsley, Nasturtium, Marigold, Radish, Beans, Peas, Eggplant, Cucumbers, Spinach, Parsnips, Head Lettuce, Mint Summer Savory, Onions and Garlic. Not all need to be planted, just your favorites. 

Keep these plants away from Bed One – Corn, Potato; keep cabbage family away from Tomatoes, Onions away from Beans, Peas and Sage.  Keep Basil away from Bean and Peas, No Sage by Cucumbers.

Rotate Potato between rows of other vegetable listed.  If Bed Three touches Bed Two, keep carrots and parsnips (bed two) separated.  Keep turnips (bed two) away from Potato. Keep Potato away from parsnip (bed two).

Bed Four – Green cover crop

If Bed four is the corn and pumpkin, keep all squash, pumpkin, melons away from potatoes.  Squash and Melons really don’t like anything except Corn and Radish.  Cucumbers get along good with Beans, peas, Cabbage Family, Onions, Tomatoes but NOT Potatoes, that is why it is good to put them up with the tomatoes.

 

 

 

Bed Five

Corn

Yarrow

Melons

Melons

Nasturtium

Chamomile

Zucchini/Summer Squash

Tarragon

Pumpkins and Squash

Potato

Melons

Bed Five is Melons, Squash, Pumpkin, Corn, Nasturtium, Yarrow, Chamomile, and Marigold.  Mix the corn around as the plants that vine like to grow under and around corn stalks.  The exception to this is the years that Bed One and Bed Five touch, then keep the Corn away from the Tomatoes.

Keep away from this group away from Potatoes, and keep Corn away from Tomatoes.

Rotation of Beds

Rotating beds each year helps to prevent disease and keep specific plants from depleting the soil.

There are many crop rotation plans; most of them keep families together.  Unfortunately, not all members of families are compatible, and there are members of different families that actually benefit each other.

This method of rotation uses Companion Planting of Herbs and Vegetables, arranging in Beds, plants that are compatible with each other and distance them from plants that are antagonistic.

A few rules:

Never plant Potato where Tomato was the year before.  Never get the Potatoes by Melon, Cucumber, Squash, and Pumpkin, that’s why the Green cover crop is in Bed Four. Keep Corn and Cabbages away from Tomatoes. Most plants don’t like Fennel.  Pole Beans are not like bush beans, keep away from Basil, Beets, Cabbage, Onions, and Tomatoes. 

The following shows how the rotation would work.

Bed Five has the Corn mixed in with squash type plants, When Bed Five and Bed One touch; Keep the Corn (Bed Five) away from the Tomatoes (Bed One).  The Green manure crop keeps the potatoes from following Tomato.
