Of course, the first year you plan a garden, anything goes but rotation IS important for vegetables as different conditions are required by the various ‘groups’. Additionally, one crop grown year after year in the same position can lead to disease or a build-up of specific pests. Rotation to my mind is much harder in a large plot than when you are using marked-out beds, or ad-hoc throughout the garden. Just ensure you keep a note of what you plan to grow in each mini-location. As my various gardens are reclaimed, they will be filled with Dobies flowers, fruit and produce - further blog posts will report progress. Best of luck in 2013 with your own sowing, planting and cropping whether veg, fruit or flowers.
