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!

Proper plant spacing can help reduce plant disease and maintain healthy plant.

Using this chart, it’s easy enough to interplant Companion Plants in your garden.  If you’re wondering what to plant and when to plant in your area, check out our 2018 Planting Guide for the US.  We added a few new regions this year.
