    Morning all. I hope I have put this in the right area of the forum…
    I have a number of no dig, wooden sided beds in my polytunnel which were not as productive as they might have been last year, but I am hoping to do better this year. In one of the beds I had lettuce and radish, both of which did reasonably well, but I am unsure what should follow them – the RHS says it is a brassica, some sites say it’s a root and others say it’s a legume!

    Can anyone clarify, please?

    It is a brassica. Some people lump roots together regardless of family but radishes are member of the Brassicaceae family and definitelly not Fabaceae (legumes).

    Thanks Sausage. I have multi-sown in modules as per Charles, ready for when weather improves.

    Kath I advise against following 4 year rotation plans in a tunnel – instead, grow what you want to eat, with as long intervals as you can manage between plant families.
    You could sow carrots now or wait and plant tomatoes etc etc.

    Thanks Charles (going to visit allotment soon to make sure that we still have a tunnel!)..
