Crop Rotation

Grow buckwheat or clover first, then add some compost and a mix of blood and bone meal along with wood ashes or gypsum. My garden is 5 beds. I shift the plants over to the next bed each year so as to not plant the same thing in a specific bed each year. For the container gardener this would mean the same thing - you planted potatoes in this container this year, plant lettuce or beans next year in this container!

Yes, growing clover after or before you put in your plants, is a very good idea, because inside the clover-roots, lives a bacteria, that can take the nitrogen out of the air and put it into the ground.
