This flyer is designed to help you get a good coverage when planting bedding plants. 
If you set plants this far apart, here’s the area one flat will cover (plants per flat). For fast coverage, set in off set rows or in a diamond pattern. To find spacing for specific plants, check the Sunset Western Garden Book. For even distances between plants measure them apart with a piece of wood to the desired length. If you have ANY questions, ask one of McShane’s Nursery Professionals.
