Plants Per Square Foot

When trying to calculate how many plants to bring to a new garden, here’s a good rule of thumb from my last garden.

Divide your square footage and divide by two. In this particular garden I had 400 sq. ft. and so 200 plants would be plenty.

In actuality, after taking into account the paths, I really only had 300 sq. feet, so I planted 150 plants.
