Can anyone tell me if this plan will work or what needs to be moved please. The last thing I grew was a plastic fern.
Thank You

Your plan looks pretty good but a few things that caught my eye.

1. I believe you only need "Hi Tops" for carrots and potatoes if you are hilling them up. Some need it and some it doesn't help get more potatoes. Do a search on the variety you are growing.

2. Is the trellis group going to get proper sun and/or shade out other plants.

3. It doesn't show any Spring/Summer/Fall planting. Check the harvest dates and you will be able to replant a lot of the squares with something different.

I would do a companion planting search to see if you need to move any of the squares around.

And I don't see the plastic fern on your drawing

From a plastic fern to a 50+ SF...NICE!

You may not be happy with the Brussels sprouts where you have planned for them. They can be tall, thick, rangy and 'dog legged.' I would put them someplace where they can fall. Maybe exchange them with the alliums on the patio? Or move them to the outside of a box?

Your design looks great!

Thank you both for your help. The trellis is actually 6ft wide so I am hoping there will be enough sun on both sides. I moved the sprouts to the outside and swapped out the onions in the south bed for the potatoes from the north bed. I don’t know the variety yet. I am going shopping this weekend which gives me a few more days to study a companion chart.
