Crop Planning

Short rows of lettuce provide the opportunity to grow many different salads and succession sowing can keep crops producing for most of the year. Try interplanting with small rows of leafy herbs, such as lamb’s and miner's lettuce, chicory (Cichorium), dames rocket (Hesperis matronalis), red orache (Atriplex hortensis var. rubra), and French tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus), or perhaps garlic chives (Allium tuberosum). If there is the space, grow a large row of comfrey as this makes a superb compost activator and liquid fertilizer.
