Perfectly lays out six rows on a 30" bed to give each plant the ideal amount spaceMany plant spacings can be achieved with one spool using the corners, sides, and the middle of grid squares. I use the six by six for dense plantings of Spinach, and Flowers or laying out lines for planting dense paperpots.

This is the spool only - Handle needed for correct operation

The Gridder..

is a rolling dibbler used to lay out or "dibble" your plantings. It is also used to make straight lines before direct seeding or using a paperpot transplanter.

Even and straight plantings are more productive and easier to cultivate.

The gridder creates perfect, evenly spaced plantings on a 30" bed. Not recommended for beds which are not 30"

A spool is related to the number or rows you intend to plant on the bed. Thus when you wish to plant two rows, you would use a 2x2 spool.


What is the Gridder?

Plant Spacing

You need only divide the bed by the number of rows. The calculation is 30” bed /2 rows = 15” . Thus a 2x2 spool spaces plantings 15” apart in the bed which is the correct and only even spacing for 2 rows on a 30” bed. Thus a 2x2 spool is 15" wide.

Obviously in-row spacing and row spacing are identical for even plantings.

You can now figure out any spacing but doing the calculation is completely unnecessary as the Gridder will perfectly space your plantings.

If that is unclear, then the "Plant Spacing" video below should help to clarify.
