Interplanting

by nematode

Tip for planting vegetables in your small space garden.

Another way to grow a lot of vegetables in a small space is by interplanting two or more crops in the same spot. Generally, it’s a good idea to interplant quick-growing crops, such as spinach and lettuce, with vegetables that take a little longer to develop, such as onions and broccoli.By the time the slower crops mature, the faster-growing vegetables have already been harvested.

Another interplanting strategy is to mix two fast-growing crops in the same bed, such as radishes and spinach. When both crops are harvested, you can use the space for another vegetable such as green beans or squash.
