Gardener’s Supply Offering Free Online Kitchen Garden Planner

Are you starting a garden for the first time and don’t know how to decide where to plant all of your vegetables?

Want to try different scenarios with what you want to grow?

Gardener’s Supply Company is offering an online tool to help you plot out your vegetable garden.

Their tool will help you create a 3 x 6′ planting map.  You can choose from 6 preset designs or input your own selections.

-All American Garden
-Cook’s Choice
-High Yield
-Plant It & Forget It
-Salad Bar
-Salsa & Tomato Sauce

You have the ability to print, email or edit the preset designs.  For example, if you like the All American Garden with the exception of the kale, you can open it for editing and choose another vegetable.

If you aren’t partial to any of their 6 preplanned designs, you can design your own kitchen garden on their planning map. I found it simple to use.  You just have to click on any of the 30 vegetables and herbs, and drag it to the square where you would like to plant it.

The section on Step-by-Step Planting Guide is a brief introduction into the process you will need to take to get your vegetable garden up and growing.

They also feature a Vegetable Encyclopedia.  Each page highlights informations and growing needs for all of the vegetables included in the planner.

Finally, there is a tab for supplies & accessories.  Since this is a business website, their products are shown, but you can use them to at least get an idea of what you will need if you choose not to buy from them.

Are you planning on using their Kitchen Garden Planner?
