Plangarden is currently more of a harvest program than a planning program. I would like to see it automatically space vegetables at the correct distance apart.

Post Plant Spacing 
Good news -- that is on the short list.
Once I get Zoom/Panning done it is off to adding a more robust database under the hood.
Once this is in place it will be easy to add plant spacing and much much more.

Here are some inital thoughts.
There will be a new feature added at this time that will allow BLOCK planting along with the PLANT and ROW features currently in the software. For the ROW and BLOCK feature you would be able to hit a button that would tell you how many vegetables you could plant in the area.

Also for a visual reference you could enable PLANT SPACING and it would highlight an area under the plant/row showing how much room the plant wants/needs.

I do not plan on having the software reorganize your garden into some optimal layout. The chance that the algorithm would be smarter/better than a gardener would be fairly slim.

I hope you keep up with developments as this is a dynamic application. It will continue to evolve to add more plant databases, minimize manual entries but at the same time, allow users the >flexibility< to override any suggested spacing, planting or harvesting guides to suit each individual case.
