Plant Spacing Chart for Veggies Posted on 23 Feb 08:49 , 1 comment

So many different kinds of vegetables need different spacing and it can be difficult to remember how much space goes between each plant. In order to make growing a garden easier, we have put together a plant spacing chart to help you.

 

Please keep in mind that this is not plant spacing for square foot gardening.  Square foot gardening allows you to plant much closer.  We're working on another article specific for square foot gardening.  Stay tuned!
