Plants in a raised bed garden

How close together can I plant vegetables or flowers in my raised bed garden?
Submitted by BHGPhotoContest

Spacing for plants depends on the type of plants and their ultimate size. Generally if the seed packet indicates that the plants will grow a certain number of inches apart within the row, they will also grow that far apart in all directions, creating a solid "bed" rather than rows.
