Square Foot Gardening is the most practical, foolproof way to grow a home garden, whether you’re growing an urban garden, or have an entire backyard. In All New Square Food Gardening, the best-selling gardening book is re-launched and updated for the next generation of gardeners and beyond.
Since Square Foot Gardening was first introduced in 1981, the revolutionary new way to garden developed by Mel Bartholomew has helped millions of home gardeners grow more fresh produce in less space and with less work. Now, based largely on the input and experience of these millions, the system has been even further refined and improved to fully meet today’s changing resources, needs, and challenges.
With over 150 new photos and illustrations, this new edition makes it easier than ever to achieve nearly-foolproof results in virtually any situation: 100% of the produce; 20% of the water; 5% of the work. Perfect for experienced Square-Foot-Gardeners or beginners, the original method created by Mel has not changed in any significant way with this new 3rd edition of All New Square Foot Gardening.
It remains: build a box; fill it with Mels Mix; add a grid. But along with the classic steps, you will find some interesting and compelling new information, such as: Adding trellises and archways; Substituting with new materials; Adding automatic watering systems; ‘Thinking Outside the Box’ with creative configurations and shapes; Square Foot Gardening in dense urban areas with little or no yard; Square Foot Gardening with kids; Crop protection
