Cheers Leila and Tyler, I have altered my plan slightly. I have now removed the Nasturtiums at the top of the plan and replaced them with Borage and at the bottom of the plan I have replaced the Borage with Asparagus (6 Plants) so that the Asparagus is planted along the edge (Do you think six is enough? And will I have to replace the Asparagus at the end of a season with something else? or can I now just grow Asparagus their continually?)

Where the original Asparagus (3 plants) was located I have just grown a few more Tomatoes, my parents love Tomatoes.
I have also swapped Plot A (Roots - carrots and onions) with Plot D (Peas, Beans and Potatoes) in the cycle, is that what you meant Leila? (I have confused myself a bit here). So the order now is:

• Carrots, Onions

• Peas, Beans
Potatoes

• Tomatoes
Basil, Tomatoes

• Broccoli
Rocket, Radish

I will try and attach the new diagram.

I have been studying crop rotation and companion planting non-stop for a week now. This is the first time I have ever done anything like this and doing it in a section of my parents garden where there is grass lawn that has never really been used. I have designed a plan for a four year crop rotation (that I have attached) for a non-dig vegetable garden from information I gathered of various sites over the internet and was hoping some more experienced (anybody) that could give me some advice on my plans and to make sure they will work.
