It would be about 8', maybe a little less, between each plant. I was thinking of doing them in alphabetical order left to right to keep track of which is which so it would be Cascade, 8', Mt. Hood, 8', Nugget, 8' and then Willamette. Another thought of getting just Nugget and Cascade is if I lose one plant of one vairety at least I still have the second. If I get four varieties and lose one that means none of that kind.
