Spring Garden Planner

If you're not sure where to get started in your spring garden, we have put together some simple planting plans to get you started. Whether you want a fruit garden bursting with fresh berries, a salad and herb garden for spring salads or a BBQ garden for your summer entertaining dishes, we have a plan for you!

These planting plans call for planting quite densely which is great to pack in a real variety of fruit and veges, just take care to water and feed regularly. They are based on a 1m x 2m garden bed, split into 6 equal sections. If your garden is larger or smaller, simply add or remove sections as needed.

Salad and Herb Garden Planting Plan

This garden planting plan has everything you need for delicious summer salads! If it is still cooler in your region you may want to leave spaces and wait until later in October to plant some of the more tender plants such as tomatoes and cucumbers - or at least use a cloche to protect them from the elements.

BBQ Garden Planting Plan

If BBQs are your summer staple meals, this garden plan is for you. Sweetcorn cooked on the BBQ and salads with freshly picked lettuce, beetroot and tomatoes will be on the menu if you plant this garden. If it is still cooler in your region you may want to leave spaces and wait until later in October to plant some of the more tender plants such as tomatoes - or at least use a cloche to protect them from the elements.

Fruit Garden Planting Plan

This fruit garden is one you can enjoy for seasons to come, as the plants will last for many years not just one season!

Offset plants in a zig zag pattern to help fit more in your beds.
