HOW TO SET OUT YOUR GARDEN
Each month we deliver a useful 'how to' guide, with your fresh organic punnets, which helps with the layout of your garden. Use the guides below to help work out the best layout for your garden.
We use Intensive gardening techniques as it makes the most of the space, conserves moisture and helps to control weeds. With Intensive Gardening, plants are spaced close together in triangular patterns. When the plants are mature their leaves should slightly overlap. Regular punnet and seed packaging will generally advise more generous spacing. Instead, try to follow our recommendations for each plant, in order to get the most out of your garden.
PLANT SPACINGS ARE IDENTIFIED ON EACH 'HOW TO' GUIDE
PLAN OUT YOUR GARDEN BEFORE DIGGING
USE OFFSET ROWS & PLANT IN TRIANGLES
SPACING BETWEEN DIFFERENT PLANT VARIETIES
Add together the recommended spacing for the two crops then divide their total by two. For example, if cabbage (30cm) are planted next to lettuce (15cm) add 30 + 15 = 45, then divide by 2 = 22.5. The cabbage should be planted 22.5cm from the lettuce.
