How close can I plant a few vegetables and a couple of hydrangeas along my fence?

How far off the fence can I plant?

Answer: Hi Tlee,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

I would suggest planting Hydrangeas 500mm off the fence to allow even growth. As for veggies it really depends on the type of the vegetables and the mature size. A rule of thumb is to allow half of the suggest sowing distance off the fence ( assuming there is good fertile soil).

I would also suggest improving soil before planting by digging in some Dynamic Lifter Organic Plant Food, which is a manure based organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Louise
