I prepped a bed, about 2 feet by 12 feet. I planted 6 or 7 plants. That was a mistake, I should have put them 4 or 5 feet apart. They filled that whole area in one summer and if I hadn't kept them mowed, the bed would have beem 6 feet wide too. That was 2 years ago. This year I added 8 feet of row but had enough plants in the bed that I could have made a row 100 feet long. I need to practice my thinning. They will grow and they will spread.
