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

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 combative

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 needs
