    Hi Luke.
    For us new gardeners we would like a little more detail to understand the differences between intercropping and companion planning.
    Does it matter how far apart they are?
    Is planting 2 or more plants in 1 4×12' bed considered intercropping?
    If there is a plant like the radish you showed, how far away would be considered normal planting?
    Thank you for all your videos they are a great help…

    Potatoes can be easily intercropped with broadbeans. This combination works well at least in the nordic countries, where these crops have similar planting and harvesting time. I usually don't increase distance between seed potatoes when planting onto the field, where I plan to use intercropping with broadbean. And sow 1 broadbean inbetween each pair of potatoes. The potato harvest per square metre will be maybe slightly smaller compared to pure potato field, but I'll get loads of broadbeans from the same area and broadbeans seem to have less pest damage than when planted into pure broadbean field.

    I broke my arm so it’s taking a toll on my garden I can’t pull up dead plants and struggle to plant new seeds and fertilize

    Thanks for the bit about inter cropping vs companion planting. I found myself worrying and stressing about where to plant everything in my garden. Companion planting was a bit stressful but I’ll take this info for next season.

    That makes so much sense as to why my kale didn't get rain until we harvested the dill grown with it! Saving this info. We love intercropping in our small garden space

    Whether you admit it or not, what you are doing IS a form of companion planting.

    I had five cabbages and four of the five were completely destroyed. Like you said just the veins of the leaves were left 🤦‍♂️I guess I will try this next year. Thanks

    It sounds good, but I have a baby kale that was literally underneath a huge basil and a thai basil bush, that was stripped by cabbage worms. Whatever moth we have here, isn't confused.
