veg plots

Berkshire, United Kingdom Gb

hi ive started 4 small veg plots and i want to crop rotate but i get stuck on what veg to plant next to one another in their veg familys ie braccicas can any one help with a plan.



Ideally you must crop rotate as follows:
A) Roots: Potato, Beetroot, Carrot, Parsnip and the similar.
B) Brassicas: Broccoli, Brussels sprout, Cabbage, Cauliflower and the similar
C) All others: Onion, Lettuce, Bean, e.t.c.
Not very easy to many people to put into practice, but very beneficial if you can manage it.

A four year rotation would look something like this...

Plot 1 Potatoes followed by lime
Plot 2 Legumes (Beans) followed by additional lime
Plot 3 Brassicas
Plot 4 Onions & Roots followed by manure
