Just as Lyn does. a couple of inches from the base

Why are row and plant distances different?

Posted: 16/04/2015 at 18:26

Yes, a bit.....a lot....of common sense required.  

I grow my salad crops (carrots, beetroot, spring onions) in much the same way.......rows 3" apart 4 rows then a gap of 12" before the next 4 row sowings.  Works well for me producing excellent well developed crops.

lettuce are 9" apart in rows 12" apart.  Onions vary from 3" to 6" ...the bigger spacing produces larger bulbs. 

Have I killed my bay trees?

Just water well and look for new buds.  If and when they grow you can remove old leaves etc

I often split mine in the summer too.  Tough surviving plants.  Just water well

Have I killed my bay trees?

Emily. Bays are pretty tough.  

Leave it as it is but water well and keep outside.  Hopefully new leaves will grow but don't prune or remove leaves
