Likewise, people ask, what can I plant in a 4x4 raised vegetable garden?

Salad greens work well in a small space because the leaves grow closely and don't take up a large amount of space. Other small vegetables include carrots, beets, asparagus and onions. Tomatoes, bush beans and peppers take up more space in your small garden due to the size of the grown plants, but they still work.

Beside above, how many plants can you plant in a raised bed? At 12-inch centers, 2,304 square inches ÷ 144 square inches = 16 plants. At 13-inch centers, 2,304 square inches ÷ 169 square inches = 13.6 or 14 plants.

Secondly, how many tomato plants can I plant in a 4x4 raised bed?

1 Answer. I'd go with five. You can find many sites that'll tell you that you can space tomatoes as close as 24 inches, 6 to 9 plants in a 4' X 4', but mine always come out stunted when I do that. One near each corner, and one in the middle should give your indeterminates plenty of room to grow and fruit.

How much soil do I need for a 4x4 raised bed?

For example, if you have a length of 5 feet, a width of 4 feet and a depth of 2 feet, the volume would be 40 cubic feet (5 x 4 x 2 = 40). This is the amount of dirt you will need to fill your raised planter box. This would equal 20 bags of soil sold in bags containing 2 cubic feet of dirt each.
