What are the indicators I see in my garden?
Helpful garden indicators in Planter let you plan and manage your garden at a glance!
Compatibility indicators are the green, red, and yellow circles (and quarter-circles) that sometimes appear between plants in your garden.
- Green circles between plants means they are companions and work well planted next to each other
- Red circles between plants means they are combative and shouldn’t be planted next to each other
- Yellow circles mean that some varieties of the plants are companions while others are combative
- No circle between plants means they are neutral - neither companions nor combativeRed circles have a darker inner circle to help color-blind gardeners identify themIf you see a yellow circle, you may want to research whether the varieties you plan to plant side-by-side are compatible
Plant spacing indicators
Planter indicates how many plants should be planted per-square-foot by showing a number with an X and a white circle around it:
- 4x means 4 plants can be planted within one square foot of garden space
- Plants that need a square foot of space or more per plant do not have a spacing indicator - the size of the plant icon in the garden shows how many square feet the plant needsIf you change Planter to metric units, plant spacings remain the same- Planter indicates how many plants can be planted in roughly 1/10m²
