Last summer my wife and I started gardening on the deck more intensively. We began by building a plant stand for the deck that held four 24” planters. After reading about various intensive planting methods, we decided to make templates for planting seeds in the planters. We have provided two different templates. Depending on the vegetable grown, each template provides a double row planting layout that accommodates the narrow width of the planter. Due to the small size of the container in general, it is ideally planted with radishes, lettuce, spinach, onions, carrots and the like. Just place a few seeds in each hole and thin after they have two true leaves.
