This gardening classic first published in 1981 makes the crucial point that vegetable garden boxes save water while generating more produce. It’s also organic, uses no fertilizer and once planted requires minimal weeding or other work. I’m in! In addition to information on building the boxes and filling them with a good soil, you'll learn how to plan a garden that will put fresh veggies on the table for your family all summer. If you

This is an easy-to-read guide for an easy-to-grow garden. Bartholomew takes most of the overwhelming details out of garden and distills things down to make growing vegetables easy and doable even in small spaces. There are instructions for building the garden beds, square foot grids, trellises, covers and more; directions on creating his custom soil-replacement growing mix; as well as high-level info on many common garden vegetables. Looking forward to starting my plans for spring!

Obviously, this isn't a book you read leisurely. I've followed the guidelines of Square Foot Gardening and my garden is sprouting wonderfully! I'd definitely recommend this book as a guide to "green" gardeners such as myself.

Nice visually appealing book with useful information. It felt a bit too prescriptive and the whole "Mel's Mix" and Mel's rules felt kind of informercially.

For me, this is a little novel way of growing vegetables, but it makes sense. As our back yards are getting smaller, this is certainly a very sensible way of growing vegetables, without waste and constant weeding, for our families.
With great pictures and workable plans, plant and soil information, this garden is very easy to achieve and very rewarding for the gardener. There are instruction on how to make the beds, how to mix the special soil and information about the veggies that would be suita

What's not to love about growing more in less space? As with previous editions, the book clearly documents how to plan, set up, care for, harvest from your square foot garden and store the produce you've grown. Plans include building the growing box in addition to options for growing vertically and also ways to protect plants from raiding pests and harsh weather. Also included are instructions for building and maintaining a compost bin and making Mel's growing mix. The final section of the book ...more
