Winter Vegetables-rotation

Susan O\’ Brien asked 10 years ago

Vegetables in the garden are divided into 4 plots-brassicas, alliums legumes, roots-potatoes planted elsewhere-I only want to use one section over the winter/spring period-this year’s allium plot – can I sow/plant from all grps in this area regardless of usual rotation cycle-and then resume the usual rotation cycle next year?

It is very difficult to maintain a proper rotation in a domestic garden, but anything you can do helps, however marginally.

The onion familly is prone to white rot of the roots and is probably best kept by itself in any case.
