So after reading Emma’s post about companion planting links and a lot of google searching I came to the conclusion that I should definitely move my broccoli plants out of the shared bed.
They were sharing with peppers, strawberries and courgettes and even though some websites said that this was OK, the main bunch of them said avoid so out they came.
The broccoli went into a large trough.
At the same time I also moved the peppers as I think they could do with a bit more sun and also so in the winter I can move them inside.
To replace the huge gap in the shared bed I have just sown some more carrots, some parsnips and two pumpkin seed! These combinations I have researched and it turns out they can sleep very well together!
Today the tomato plants got re-potted and placed in the sunniest position, the front window!
Two are now living in pots of their own:
and one is continuing to live with the basil.
I also re-potted my spinach and planted some more rocket as my last lot died a horrible death.
I thought if I just left them to grow then I could harvest a hugh amout at once, this does not seem to be the way! Emmms said with her last lot she did the same with and it died too so this time she just cut a few leaves a day and now it is flourishing! That is what I will do!
