Item Description...

Do you know what the best feature is in All New Square Foot Gardening?

Sure, there are ten new features in this all-new, updated book. Sure, it's even simpler than it was before. Of course, you don't have to worry about fertilizer or poor soil ever again because you'll be growing above the ground.

But, the best feature is that anyone, anywhere can enjoy a Square Foot garden. Children, adults with limited mobility, even complete novices can achieve spectacular results.

But, let's get back to the ten improvements. You're going to love them.


1)AAAAA New Location - Move your garden closer to your house by eliminating single-row gardening. Square Foot Garden needs just twenty percent of the space of a traditional garden.

2)AAAAA New Direction - Locate your garden on top of existing soil. Forget about pH soil tests, double-digging (who enjoys that?), or the never-ending soil improvements.

3)AAAAA New Soil - The new "Mel's Mix" is the perfect growing mix. Why, we even give you the recipe. Best of all, you can even buy the different types of compost needed.

4)AAAAA New Depth - You only need to prepare a SFG box to a depth of 6 inches! It's true--the majority of plants develop just fine when grown at this depth.

5)AAAAA No Fertilizer - The all new SFG does not need any fertilizer-ever! If you start with the perfect soil mix, then you don't need to add fertilizer.

6)AAAAA New Boxes - The new method uses bottomless boxes placed aboveground. We show you how to build your own (with step-by-step photos).

7)AAAAA New Aisles - The ideal gardening aisle width is about three to four feet. That makes it even easier to kneel, work, and harvest.

8)AAAAA New Grids - Prominent and permanent grids added to your SFG box help you visualize the planting squares and know how to space for maximum harvest.

9)AAAAA New Seed Saving Idea - The old-fashioned way advocates planting many seeds and then thinning the extras (that means pulling them up). The new method means planting a pinch- literally two or three seeds--per planting hole.

10)A Tabletop Gardens - The new boxes are so much smaller and lighter (only 6 inches of soil, remember?), you can add a plywood bottom to make them portable.


Of course, that's not all. We've also included simple, easy-to-follow instructions using lots of photos and illustrations. You're going to love it!

Not for the experienced gardener  Nov 22, 2008
The book is has good info for the very beginner gardener. If you are more advanced, look to another book. This very basically explains raised bed planting with compost, vermiculite and peat and then heavily over planted on a grid. Not much info on companion planting or plating in general. Great book for beginners though!
wow  Nov 12, 2008
This book has opened my eyes to a new way of gardening. I am inspired and excited about the first box I just planted! Since I live where it's warmer, my fellow gardeners tell me we can have crops just about all year round. They are also watching my 'experiment' closely and have told my husband they may be asking him to build square foot garden boxes for them too!
Mel's a Genius!  Nov 8, 2008
What a terrific idea! I spent 20 minutes watering my traditional garden in central Texas one day (no rain here for months). I noticed that the water just pooled into the aisles where I walk and thought about what a waste that was. Later, as I was walking with my friend she told me about her square foot garden and I went to look at it! I was amazed - I love things well-organized and there was no wasted space. She loaned me her book until I could get my own copy. I got my garden prepared right before the homeschool book club met at my house. As one of our "City of Ember" activities the girls planted my square-foot garden. They all showed their moms and told them they wanted their own square-foot garden. It is thriving! All of the seeds came up even though they were planted by 11 - 13 year olds. The next week I planted my traditional garden. Plants from the same batch that went into my regular garden are light years behind the square-foot one! My daughter's piano teacher has since ordered the book and put one in, too. This is the only way to go!
Now is the time to garden!  Nov 3, 2008
In this time of layoffs, economic uncertainty, rising prices. This is a good book to read and follow. Start building your containers now and be ready to plant come the spring.
Excellent, frugal, and i can understand it and wont be a slave to the garden!
Can't wait to give it a try!  Nov 3, 2008
This is a great book that is very simple to understand and easy to read. The ideas presented are very compelling and I can't wait to see the results of my square foot garden. Everything you need to know about starting your own garden is contained in this easy to use book. I would definitely recommend it, and plan on buying it for many of my relatives as a Christmas gift. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that parts of it get a little repetitive. I guess that's the author trying to reinforce key points. It's probably not as noticeable if you skip around to various chapters or read it over a longer period of time. I read it all the same night.
