Remove non-productive crops

Probably in October there are few crops that still yield crops, so it is really worth releasing the terraces and pots, and preparing them to perform the transplant of autumn crops. Before doing the transplant, it is essential to maintain the crop rotations , that is, to alternate different crops in the same plot over time, so that many years have to pass to plant a specific crop in the same area again.

In this way, you can also take more advantage of nutrients and prevent the proliferation of pests . An example: after a crop of Solanaceae or Cucurbitaceae, it is advisable to plant leaf crops such as escaroles , lettuce and spinach, among others. Now, after a leaf crop, it would be good to plant root crops such as leeks, radishes, garlic and onions.

This cleaning can also be applied to the garden of aromatic plants , removing those of annual cycle, to leave room for new plants, once you have added more compost.
