I am new to permaculture, hugelkultur, companion planting and gardening in general. I guess you could say I'm intellectually lazy because I'm finding it difficult to come up with strategies of which plants go where based on a compatibility / friend-foe chart, not to mention all the other things I didn't know when I looked at the chart such as the use of nasturdium and marigold to ward off pests.
This is why I find a very clear strategy like Three Sisters invaluable. It's a recipe: stay confined within the recipe until you learn this stuff cold or are more comfortable to venture out--that's my strategy.
Is there a list of other approaches similar to THree Sisters?
I'm looking specifically for strategies that use hugelkultur, mushrooms, grains, orchards (fruit/nut), medicinal herbs, green manuring and forest gardens; where every player is a highly functional, beneficial input.
Thanks in advance for your help!
