[Video] Intensive Planting Strategies for Tight Spaces

Try these intensive planting strategies to grow more food in small spaces…

Did you know that the spacing shown on seed packets isn’t always accurate? Not to mention, it can be misleading, as many gardeners don’t realize that the spacing given should be from the center of the plant to the center of the next plant, which means many people plant too far apart, thereby wasting valuable garden space. If you are using intensive gardening methods, you can plant even closer – as long as your soil is rich and nutrient-dense enough to support more plants in a given area.

This short video shares some examples of intensive planting strategies where seed packet spacing doesn’t apply. Here is a quick peek at what you will learn:

  •  How to grow winter squash, peas and pole beans, and indeterminate tomatoes vertically using square foot gardening spacing
  •  How to grow 2 peppers per 7 gallon grow bag, or grow successfully in the ground at just 10″ to 12″ apart
  • How to intensively plant cut-and-come-again greens
  • How to grow fast-growing small crops in the spaces between large slow-growing plants
  • How to grow shorter shade-tolerant plants in the understory of taller plants
  • How to experiment with new ways to push the limits of intensive planting
  • And more!

Watch now to learn how to use intensive planting to maximize your yield from your available garden space:

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
