New Zealand spinach develops slowly during its young plant stage, but later spreads very widely. Therefore, the initially empty space between the rows can be very well occupied with fast growing radishes and lettuce.

The following 3 plant varieties are included in this intercropping seed set:
  • New Zealand spinach, Botany Bay spinach (Tetragonia tetragonioides)
    New Zealand spinach is a perennial but frost-sensitive spinach plant with a strong taste and lush growth.
  • Batavia lettuce 'Grazer Krauthäuptel' (Lactuca sativa)
    Tasty relative of iceberg lettuce and butter lettuce. Wonderful appearance of the leaves when serving. Crisp, hearty and low in calories.
  • Radish 'Malaga' (Raphanus sativus)
    Mild radish with white, crunchy flesh and purple skin.
The seeds of each variety are packaged in a separate sachet.

Intercropping or companion planting is the implementation of a sensible crop balance in your vegetable patch, just as nature demonstrates it. Although the competition between plants is usually intense, as every plant strives to get the most light, water and nutrient conditions, there are always so-called companion plants. This term refers to plant species that can live well side by side because they do not interfere with each other but very often actually support and strengthen each other. Those companions are sure to create a good and balanced neighbourhood in your vegetable patch.

We have developed a series of intercropping and companion planting seed sets. Each set contains 3 to 6 plant varieties, which are very well suited for cultivation as companion species. In most cases, these are vegetables and herbs. It is possible to alternate the companion plants in rows, within a row or also in mixed variety as it happens with square-foot gardening.
The immediate neighbouring plants should complement each other and not attack each other's basis of life. Ideally you will find neighbours such as carrot and salad (deep roots and shallow roots) or cabbage and peas (heavy and feeble demand in nutrients) or maize and pumpkin (sun- and shade-loving plants).
