Just print a copy, and tuck it inside your garden planner, and it’ll save you from having to jump on the Internet to look up the proper spacing every time you go to plant something.

I’d recommend laminating it or sticking it inside a page protector, so you can take it out to the garden with you.

Many web browsers have their own built-in PDF viewers, but they tend to be buggy. If you’re having trouble printing or editing one of our printables, click here for help.

  1. Thank you so much for providing these guides. This will save us a lot of research and guessing. We only have four 3′ x 6′ raised beds and want to get the maximum amount out of them to carry two people through the winter. We had a pergola installed over our 12′ x 14′ patio to provide needed shade where I can grow lettuces, herbs and other plants that need indirect sun. I am praying for a bountiful summer!
