The Q&A Archives: What size garden do I need?

Question: 5 Tomato Plants, 3 each of the following - cucumber, zucchini, carrot, Leaf Lettuce, peppers

Answer: Tomato plants should be spaced 2-3 feet apart in all directions if they are determinate types (bush types) and 4-5 feet apart if they are indeterminate type plants. Cucumbers need lots of room to sprawl - at least 5 feet per plant. Same with zucchini. The peppers will need 2' all around between plants, lettuces need about 12 inches between plants and carrots about 8-10 inches. I'd sketch the garden out on paper so you will know exactly how much room you will need. Hope you have a great harvest!
