Is it ok to grow cabbages and sprouts in a raised bed where I have had dwarf beans nd leeks last year



I can't think of any reason why not, Gardenvegbil, It's almost exactly what I am doing myself this year., although I don't have raised beds. Welcome to Goy!

Thanks v much re planting of cabbages, just had somewhere in the back of my mine about not planting brassicas where onion family had been year before or I am muddled about this.

I don't know about that, Gvb, If there is, someone on here is sure to know about it and will say so.

Thanks Gattina I think I am going to risk putting the plants in. Growvegbil.

Convention crop rotation is as follows:

Year 1 potatoes
Year 2 legumes
Year 3 brassicas
Year 4 onions

However, on a small scale I wouldn't worry too much!
