Hello Follow Growers,

I am building my first Hugelkultur and would appreciate your thoughts on the below selected plantings for northern New Mexico. I would like your feedback on interplanting and if there is a need for additional nutrients besides rotting wood, aged horse manure, etc. I will be planting in a 8' x 5' bed following Brenda Ash's [url]https://permies.com/t/125299/Hugelkulture-Year-Results/url] design process.

Rhubarb
Chives
Jerusalem artichoke – Helianthus tuberosus
Garlic
Kale
Bunching onions; Egyptian onions, Allium proliferum
Lovage – Levisticum officinale
Ramps – Allium ursinum
Daylilies – Hemerocallis
Radicchio (typically grown as an annual) – Cichorium intybus
Raspberries
Blackberries
Blueberries
cornflower
Lavender
Spinach
Carrots
Squash

Thank you,

Bruce

Strawberries have done the best of any plant on my hugels, but would likely do better in shoulder seasons in your more extreme climate. It would seem even more valuable to have deciduous vines or other perennials situated so they shade the strawberries in mid day in mid summer when the sun is highest, but allow light in during spring and fall. The strawberries on hugels ripened weeks earlier and kept growing for weeks after others in the area.

The HB is complete. Waiting (fingers crossed) for final frost to start planting. I will be planting everything listed above however, at this time I do not have access in my area to purchase the following:

Bunching onions; Egyptian onions, Allium proliferum
Lovage – Levisticum officinale
Ramps – Allium ursinum
Cornflower
 
This one time, at band camp, I had relations with a tiny ad.
