Seeding Plants: Keep The Desired Spacing of the Growing Plants In Mind When Seeding   Leave a comment

Here’s a brief excerpt on planting seeds from The Medicinal Herb Grower by Richo Cech:

Richo Cech, Author of "The Medicinal Herb Grower"

“The desired finished spacing of the plants depends on many factors.

  • Root form is a major consideration.  Echinaca purpurea, with its spreading root system, must be planted at least 12 inches apart, while Echinacea angustifolia, with its taprooted habit, may be planted as closely as 4 inches apart.
  • Eventual size of the plant is a critical factor–you want to give them elbowroom, but maximize yield.
  • Water availability and method of watering is another factor here.
  • If dryland farming, space the plants further apart, so they don’t compete for limited water resources
  • If relying on drip lines, then space the plants with drip compatibility in mind.”
