You can plant the taller, bigger things together, or the families together.

Taller, bigger kinds are broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, turnip… all cabbage family.

Carrots, onions and lettuce are each different families. They are smaller and mangetout is the tallest, and can be up to 1.5m, not really suitable for a raised bed, which is best for smaller kinds … salads especially.

Put your mangetout at one end and the other larger kinds at the other end.
