Have you grown some plants and are now ready for another challenge? Want to experiment with different techniques? Polyculture (growing a variety of plants together), successive planting, crop rotations, watering techniques and saving seeds will increase your yield and save resources and money. Use the resources on this page to 'dig deeper' into gardening, dispel some myths and utilize best practices.
Anni Kelsey explains how to source and propagate different vegetables, which plants work well together in polycultures, and what you can plant in small, shady, or semi shady beds, as well as in sunny areas.
One of the essential practices of permaculture is to develop perennial agricultural systems that thrive over several decades without expensive and harmful inputs: perennial plant guilds, food forests, agroforestry, and mixed animal and woody species polycultures.
