  • Crop rotation is a technique for annual plants, so the plants will have to come out eventually any way.
    You can still plant annuals around perennials in the same bed, and manage the annuals with crop rotation while leaving the perennials be.
    Personally I tend to avoid mono-cultural 'crops' anyway, and just go for diversity of species across both time and space all the time.
