    I've got 659 sq. ft. of beds to install flowers in.....the flowers I'm wanting to use require a 9"-12" spacing.
    How many plants needed?
    What formula did you use to figure this ?
    Thanks

    The estimate I got was....

    758 flowers....

    which..here..would be around 30 trays

    this is done by a formula....i have a chart that will figure the amount you need for any amount of spacing...

    if you want..i can email it to you...just let me know

    Spaced at 9" it will take 1169 plants
    Spaced at 12" it will take 658 plants
    Got this off of a small landscape program I have.

    longslawn, What's the name of that program? Do you find yourself using it a lot?
