SFG Possible in Smaller Plots?

brkieffner(5B)December 5, 2012

Hello all! Quick question.

Most information states a 4'x4' is ideal for a beginner to utilize the SFG techniques. I will be using this for sure come the summer months. However, my question is if I wanted to apply SFG techniques in the greenhouse is it possible?

For example a 1'x4' strip. Can you plant successfully that way? Going by the rules you could plant one tomato plant per "square" right?

Thank you.

Yes you can use any size bed. Yes you can plant 1 tomato per square if it is an indeterminate and you prune the suckers. Some will use 2 squares per tomato. It seems to depend on the amount of sunlight you get and whether you usually have problems with diseases.
