Post garden layout 
I am new to gardening and was wondering if I input the vegetables I want to plant and the garden dimensions is there is a feature in this program that would suggest the location to plant each vegebatable (planting layout)?

Thanks,
Gib

Post Garden Layout 
Hello Gib,

I responded to your email, but for the benefit of the forum users, here's a copy of the response:

If you haven't done so yet, please have a look out our tutorials: http://www.plangarden.com/manual/

The 5-min. "Quick Tour" will familiarize you with Plangarden. Inputting veggies, setting garden dimensions, and the spacing requirements are covered in the tutorials.

Because every garden is unique with its own soil, climate, surrounding flora (trees, shrubs), space and configuration limitations, etc., we provide users with as much flexibility as possible to determine what works best for them, rather than have the program automatically tell users what they should do. Some users follow Square Foot Gardening, which has vastly different requirements from W-O-R-D Gardening (wide rows, organic, raised beds, deep soil). Some knowledge of gardening is required for you to grow your vegetables, and because so many people have asked for it, we are soon launching our plant library which will contain nutrient, shade and watering requirements. Otherwise, there are many gardening books (here are some books we recommend and which you can get at your public library: http://www.plangarden.com/vegetable_books/ ) as well as sites you can search on Google to get these types of information.

We wrote a blog post on strategies for the veg garden here:
http://plangarden.wordpress.com/2009/01/28/7-different-strategies-to-plan-your-vegetable-garden/

And a great companion planting guide here:
http://plangarden.wordpress.com/2009/05/21/cp-part-iii-comparison-of-companion-planting-guides/

... which is part of a 4-part series that we did on companion planting, with useful tips on general veg gardening as well. Just do a search on our blog site (top right corner of screen): http://plangardengal.com

Hope this helps. We're here to help you learn how to use the program, as well as provide gardening suggestions/tips as well. You can also follow us on Twitter:
http://twitter/plangarden as we often converse with fellow gardeners to exchange information about gardening, pests, etc.

Best regards - Gigi
