If you are a vegetable grower it is very useful to know the exact number of vegetable seeds that you need to buy for a particular area of land. However, the planting instructions can be difficult to understand.
Planting too closely together can certainly end up costing you a fortune, because you pay more for seeds, and get less result at the same time. On the other hand, buying too few seeds will mean that there is more room for weeds to grow.
So, is there a solution?
If you go to http://www.growveg.info/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=12317 you will find an easy to use site that offers:
- · Calculator for all the main types of vegetable seeds
- · Instructions for how far you should plant the crops, and distances
- · Basic information about other types of vegetables.
This site is designed largely for potatoes especially, and has a detailed list of a huge number of varieties of potatoes that give the best results. It does however also have information for other vegetables too.
In the case of vegetables other than potatoes it only gives a generic recommendation, rather than recommendations for particular varieties.
Well worth checking out if you want to save money on seeds.
