Intercropping

Intercropping is a way of increasing the productivity in your garden, by growing lots of vegetables together with different harvesting times.

There are not many gardeners who are lucky enough to have the space to grow all the vegetables they want to try and this is a great way to get around this.

Sow quicker growing crops such as radish, early peas, spinach and dwarf lettuce between rows of slower growing veg such as parsnips and Brussels sprouts.
