Although it may be tempting, to makerepparttar layout look attractive, don't staggerrepparttar 116231 paths. Put them in straight lines wherever possible. Remember, you will probably be wheeling a barrow down them at some point, and a straight line isrepparttar 116232 shortest route between two points.

If you're doing a four-course rotation, double dig one bed in four for four years, incorporating large quantities of compost and, if possible, farmyard manure, as you replacerepparttar 116233 soil, and removing allrepparttar 116234 perennial weeds. The incorporation of large amounts of organic material means thatrepparttar 116235 completed bed has a surface several inches higher thanrepparttar 116236 pathway on either side. These heavily manured beds will be used forrepparttar 116237 more hungry crops, such as brassicas. Single dig and weedrepparttar 116238 remainder. From this point on,repparttar 116239 beds aren't walked on or disturbed.

The initial manuring ofrepparttar 116240 beds will provide adequate nutrients forrepparttar 116241 first year's cropping. From then on an annual dressing of blood, fish and bone or another organic fertiliser inrepparttar 116242 Spring, together with further applications of compost as a mulch, will keep soil fertility high.

Checkrepparttar 116243 pH ofrepparttar 116244 beds every other year with a soil testing kit and apply a sprinkling of calcified seaweed ifrepparttar 116245 beds are becoming too acid. Avoid any major disturbance ofrepparttar 116246 soil: just sprinklerepparttar 116247 fertiliser or calcified seaweed ontorepparttar 116248 surface and hoe it in lightly. Becauserepparttar 116249 soil is so friable, it is possible to harvest deep-rooting crops such as carrots, parsnips, salsify and scorzonera withoutrepparttar 116250 aid of a fork: they can simply be pulled out by hand.
