Need Help - Garden Layout - Trellis Spacing!
I'm setting up a new garden here in Nova Scotia (moved from AB) and we're planning on doing raised beds on top of some marginal soil/hardpan with a strong emphasis on trellis/vining plants.
I'm laying it out now, and am debating between north-south beds at the north end of our garden parallel to each other, or between one long east-west bed at the north end of the garden.
My question is - how far apart would the trellises (7' tall) need to be from each other as far as bed spacing to avoid casting shade on one another? These are heat lovers (tomatoes, beans, squash etc.)
If I could figure that out without actually setting everything up and growing first (bad idea!) I could make up my mind :).
Thanks for any help!
