Definition of wide row planting

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by mwhit:

gardening (usually vegetable) technique in which plants are not planted in single-file rows but are planted in rows up to three feet wide(or any width easily worked from either side allowing access to center of row). This allows the gardener to intensely prepare the soil and weed, water and fertilize economically. The closely spaced plants shade out weeds.Works well combined with raised bed gardening.Foliage type crops EG: lettuces, herbs etc. lend themselves particularly well to this style of planting. "Square foot gardening" is a variation on this technique.

Definition as written by Magpye:

A method in which vegetables and cutting gardens are laid out usually two to three feet wide instead of a single file row of plants. This is to be efficient in spacing the plants. Many plants grow together.
