Preparing Your Rows
- Refer to your Garden Plan and count how many rows you are going to need.
- You will need to make some row markers, 1 for each end of the row.
- For example: if you have 10 rows you’ll need 20 markers.
- You can use clean margarine tubs or old window blinds cut into 1" wide (2.5 cm) strips about 6" long (15 cm).
- Use permanent marker to write the name and variety of each plant. Make 2 for each row, 1 for each end.
- Take all your labels, a tape measure or yardstick and your Garden Plan out to the garden.
- Lay the measuring tape along one edge of your garden plot and use your garden plan to mark off where each row begins.
- Push the correct row marker 2 1/2" (7 cm) into thewhen each row begins.
- Leave enough space between the rows to walk between your adult plants.
- Use a piece of twine pulled taut along the row to keep your lines straight from the front to the back of the garden .
- Don’t forget the row markers at the bottom of each row.
- Now you are ready to plant your seeds and seedlings.
