Answer: Yes, when you plant in wide rows, my experience is you can plant closer together. The peppers and cauliflowers can definitely be planted closer (say 8-10 inches apart). The cucumbers and watermelons can be spaced closer if they are a bush-type variety.It should say so on the packet. The herbs can be squeezed closer by about 1/4. The only crops that still need the normal spacing are root crops such as carrots and beets. They need to be thinned adequately to develop proper sized roots. With wide rows, the advantage is you concentrate the fertilizing, watering and weeding into a small area, so the plants are healthier and more productive. Have fun!
