Is anyone else doing this in cell flats or blocks? Have you tried it but discarded the practice for bad results?
In reading Eliot's book The New Organic Grower, I find in the chapter on soil blocks, some coverage of multi-plant transplant blocks. He recommends planting several types of vegetables out as blocks of 4 to 12 plants and giving them wider spacing to grow in the garden. An example is four broccoli plants in a block transplanted on 24" inch spacing in the row with rows 30" apart...or bulbing onions, or beets transplanted out 4 to a block. He explains various advantages and I think there could be many more.
I am interested in doing this and will do some for my fall garden... just looking for your experience and lessons learned.
