Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bartholomew, author of the popular Square Foot Gardening (1981), has refined his original square-foot gardening concept by adding ten improvements, including a new location for the garden that is closer to the house, a special soil mix, and six-inch deep, 4' x 4' above-ground boxes with grids. His techniques do not require heavy digging or fertilizers and feature advice on using vertical gardening to save space. He clearly explains the square-foot concept, from the rationale behind it (the square-foot garden takes up much less space than traditional row gardening and saves time, money, and aggravation) to how to plan the garden, build the boxes and vertical supports, and employ his planting and cultural techniques. There are also helpful charts for succession planting and spacing plants and a schedule for starting seeds indoors. Despite its somewhat annoying tendency to read like an infomercial, this attractive, easy-to-understand, and well-organized book for both novice and experienced gardeners is recommended for all libraries." — Library Journal

About the Author

Bestselling author, Mel Bartholomew was an engineer by profession and a gardener by weekend. Using his engineering expertise, he developed a system that yields 100% of the harvest in 20% of the space. Mel’s method gained popularity and ultimately he converted millions of gardeners world-wide to his Square Foot method. The Square Foot Gardening titles have sold more than 2 million copies.
Always the perfect gift

5.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas and good pictures
By D. Rife on May 6, 2011
I made my own SFG before I got this book. Everytime one of my friends talked about gardening, her sentences always starts with "The Square Foot Gardening Book Says". So I had to get the book to see for myself. She got the book from the lybrary so you can check it out there first if you don't want to buy it. She followed the book to a "T". So far I have only glanced through the book, but it looks pretty good. If I would have had this book before I made my own SFG, I would have followed it too. It tells you how many plants you should plant in one square foot. That was my biggest question. I didn't know if I should plant 1, 2, 4, or 6 pepper plants in one square. This book lets you know. It has some pretty good pictures of how to do everything. The only thing that I find funny about the pictures, is that on some of the pages it has a box with a tip that says "Mel Says" and it has a picture of Mel with a big cheesy grin. It is more funny than anything. The book is a lot bigger then I thought it would be too which is nice because the pictures and are big and detailed. The book is about 10"x8". If you are thinking of doing an SFG this is a good book.

I didn't do the Mel's mix of dirt. I just went to Home Depot and got some Miracle Grow gradening dirt (I bet Mel hates that stuff) and a few bags of cheap manure and my garden seems to be doing well. I also didn't put permanent wood to mark off every square foot. I used kite string. I don't know if it will make a difference, but it's working for now. I guess we will see when my plants get bigger. One thing I wish I would have done, that this book shows you how to do, is make a 4'x4' box with plywood on the bottom so you can move it around. I am renting a house right now so if I ever have to move I would like to take my garden with me if I can. I would have made 2 - 4'x4' boxes with the plywood instead of the 4'x8' that I made without plywood. The other thing I did wrong was I put the back of my SGF up against my fence so I can't get to the back plants as easy. The solution I figured out to this problem was to cut a 2"x4" just a little bigger then the width of my garden so I could lay it accross and walk on the 2"x4". This might not work well for someone that is big or has bad knees. It works for me though. I will post a picture of my garden and name it Rifesters garden if you want to see what mine looks like.
