How Much Is Too Much?

It's a question every gardener learns to ask carefully; and an answer he or she learns to apply wisely over the seasons.  For while the garden looks rather full and verdant here in mid-August...


it was far less so in July...

...and even less impressive in June...
So when the seed packet or the seedling container's little tag advises you of the space requirements for that particular plant, don't just frown and say "You've got to be kidding me!"
They're not kidding you!
