Choosing Seeds

Before you order seeds in the early spring, draw up a quick map of your garden space on graph paper. Use the spacing guidelines for each type of plant, which can be found in reference books or on the seed packet itself. Then sketch the arrangement of the vegetables and herbs that you’d like to grow. This will help you visualize how many different types of plants you can fit in your space and decide which seeds you would like to order.
