Vegetable plants per Square Foot via SnappyGardening


Square Foot Gardening means that you section off your beds into one-foot squares instead of planting in rows.  There are many charts available online that show you at a glance how many plants of each type to plant in each square foot.

  1. Great chart!

    Just a note. The only way you can accomplish growing so closely together is by using a SUPER growing medium such as the one developed by Mel Bartholomew, inventor of the Square Foot Gardening method, after decades of research – 1/3 peat moss (or coco coir), 1/3 coarse vermiculite (perlite can be used in a pinch but doesn’t hold water as well and floats to the top) and 1/3 of a GREAT blended compost (containing more than 5 varied ingredients). Homemade compost is best as many ingredients are used.

    Unlike bagged soils, this medium will never need to be replaced! After harvesting each square, simply add a trowel of compost in that square, mix and replant.
