Hello,

I've got some plants. But i don't know which plants are good to combine. I also don't know where to plant them.
I live in zone 7 (the Netherlands
I've got 3 zone's.
One zone is rich in compost, sunny but not extremly sunny and moist.
The second is dry with little compost. I am going to put some humus and mulch on it.
The third zone is beneath the trees, it's sunny to semi-shade.
This are the plants (i think i forgot some few)

Chinese yam
Jerusalem artichoke

Hi Matis,

The best source of information for which of your plants want to go together in which of your zones is the plants themselves. Often they will surprise you!

That being said, I would recommend you check out a resource like Plants for a Future or the appendix from Edible Forest Gardens and make yourself a spreadsheet of what each of the plants you listed need. You could then sort them by the amount of sun, water or type of soil that they need. That will go a long way towards answering your question.

Also I know a few of those that you've listed are vining plants: kiwi and hops. You'll need to set up trellises for them to grow on. Kiwi's grow big and heavy and will need a sturdy trellis. Hops not as much but need plenty of room to grow up.

I would also check out lists of companion plants, more for plants that don't do well together. I bet for the most part that you won't find too many plants that won't play nice with each other.

Hope this helps!

Milton

I should probably set up a spread sheet myself, and the sooner the better. Thanks for the comment, Milton.
 
I agree. Here's the link: https://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
