Plant List

 PlantNumberSpacingSpacing in RowsNotes
Arugula 35"3" x 7"start by seed
Basil 17"5" x 9"start with a plant
Beans (Pole) 39"5" x 1' 1"start with seeds; choose any variety you'd like; just make sure they are pole beans and not bush beans. Pole beans climb, bush beans do not.
Carrot 73"3" x 5"start with seeds; once these are harvested you can plant additional seeds in there place for a second harvest later in the season
Chamomile 211"9" x 1' 3"start with seeds
Chives 17"5" x 9"start with a plant
Cilantro 27"5" x 9"start with plant or seeds
Garlic 65"3" x 9"plant in mid to late october after your last harvest of carrots are done. These will sprout in the spring and can be harvested in the summer. No need to protect them from freezing temps
Herb 27"5" x 9"This is your culantro. I'm going to include some links on growing this and where to buy the seeds
Lemon Balm 11' 11"1' 11" x 1' 11"start with a plant
Lemon Verbena 11' 1"11" x 1' 5"start with a plant
Lettuce (Leaf) 33"3" x 5"start with seeds or plants; choose any variety you'd like. I always like mixed leaf lettuces
Mint 17"5" x 9"start with a plant
Nasturtium 411"11" x 11"start with seeds or plants; you can swap out for any flower you'd like.
Onion 55"3" x 7"start with seeds; you can choose any variety you'd like. Just stear clear of varieties that need to be overwintered.
Parsley 15"3" x 9"start with a plant
73"3" x 7"start with seeds; I really like sugar snap peas; choose a climbing variety (most are)
Petunia 211"9" x 1' 1"start with plants; you can replace with any flower you'd like, just be sure it will grow well in a shallow container.
Potatoes (Early) 21' 3"1' 1" x 1' 7"start with seed potatoes. You should be able to find them at a local nursery. I like Oakland Nurseries for this. Fingerling potatoes and red skinned potatoes are my favorite. I'll include a potato growing guide for you as well. :)
Rosemary 17"7" x 7"start with a plant; don't overwater. Rosemary likes to dry out between waterings. The sage and lemon verbena should be able to tolerate drying out between waterings as well
Sage 111"11" x 1' 3"start with a plant
Scallions 93"3" x 3"start with seeds; plant them early before the potatoes start to sprout; this will give them plenty of space to grow. Once they are harvested the space will be freed up for the potatoes to grow into
Spinach 27"7" x 11"start with seeds or plants
Thyme 111"11" x 1' 3"start with a plant
