Square Foot Gardening Plant Spacers (set of three) – Product Review

Review by Michael Smith (Veshengro)

Have you ever wanted to get into square foot gardening but just could not be bothered with creating, time and again, for planting, the grind pattern made with string?

4601766104I did but that playing about with the string put me off. Now there is an answer available by way of the plant spacers designed and handmade in Britain in Sandy, in Bedfordshire.

This is about the easiest way to space plants/seeds for square foot gardening with no need to mark out your beds saving time and effort.

Get bumper crops in your raised beds with minimal effort, time and money. Square foot gardening is particularly effective in the summer months by saving water and reduced the amount of space for weeds to grow.

The three guides in this pack allow you to plant 1, 2, 4, 8, 9 or 16 seeds/plants per square foot, depending on the kind of vegetables that you wish to plant and grow. Some require a great deal more space than others.

Planting guide printed on guides so no need to work out spacing from packets or reading books. Simply look at the guides for the vegetable you wish to plant and in brackets will be the number of plants to put in a square foot listed on the correct guide to use and there is a handy ruler in inches and cm on each guide.

Dirt and soil cleans easily off guide and it will not weather or deteriorate so can be used for years to come.

Produced from recyclable PVC and handmade in the UK.

All three guides in the pack at just £11.99 and they will last almost for ever.


These templates are an absolute doddle to use and they also work well enough in not so square beds, as mine are, being builder bags filled with soil.

Disclosure: I received a set of plant spacers at the Edible Garden Show 2014 for review purposes, but all opinions here are mine.
