How make the best use of your raised garden bed without measuring.
Garden Stamp: The Fastest Way to Plant a Raised Garden Bed
You'll need a fresh bag of soil or growing media and a Garden Stamp.
Use the Stamp as a trowel to spread the soil evenly.
Garden Stamp is one square foot so you can stamp directly or...
...use the edge to block your squares.
Stamp out the entire bed.
Choose your seeds. (See our previous post on how to create a convenient Bead Box Seed Library.)
Place seeds following the Easy Dot Planting Guide included with your Stamp.
Gently pat the soil to cover up your seeds.
Water your freshly planted bed and hose down the Stamp.

      Never heard of the garden stamp. Where to purchase? And, how did you work out the pattern with vegetables and flowers?

    I love patterns made by the Garden Stamp and how easy it is. No space wasted in my 4 x 4 raised garden and I'm close to beig able to harvest my spinach and lettuce.
