Paper Pot Planter guidelines
However, there are a few things you should keep in mind when deciding which crops to grow or planning your new farm.
#1. Spacing – The paper chain pot with the largest spacing allows for a maximum of 150 mm of in-row spacing. Because of this, it’s important to seed crops which will perform well at this spacing. Some of the crops which will perform well at this distance and in a wide variety of locations include: onions, shallots, scallions and leeks.
However, for increased versatility you are able to plant in every second spacing or utilise companion planting as ways to creatively combat the distance between seedlings and maximise your output.
#2. Cell size – Regardless of the in row spacing (50 mm, 100 mm or 150 mm), the cells of Paper Chain Pots are standard sizes. As a creative tip, you can avoid space restrictions by transplanting in varying timeframes. For example, crops which may develop a taproot or quickly become root bound should be transplanted quicker than those which can develop in the Paper Pot System.
