Hi garden experts, I have one long raised garden bed... I have just learned about the wonders of crop rotation. I do really want to grow a mixture of families. Would it work to physically divide it into three sections? With what? I have been suggested fibrous cement sheeting, not certain if this would hold up to moisture and be safe for a food garden.
Any ideas, has anyone solved a similar problem? Thanks

Hi CH2012, I'm sure the fibre cement sheeting would be safe, but you might check if the cement content leaches out in time to make the soil alkaline.
Great idea rotation. But the fallow year can be by-passed with all the additives we have nowadays and the gardens not being acres, but just square metres
If you can still get it there was a book by Coralie Whitby called Eco Gardening which had quite a few tips for organic gardening starting with the soil of course, cheers
