Let your plants breathe

While jamming plants in is a great way to get the most from your garden bed, it can also cause problems. Avoid planting your vegetables too close together, it really isn't good for them. The seed packet or label on the punnet of seedlings will tell you how far apart to plant. Follow the instructions, they are there for a reason. Good air flow between the plants can help prevent many types of fungal diseases. It also makes it easier to mulch, weed and water, not to mention harvest those delicious veggies when they are ripe.
