Rapidly increasing in popularity, square foot gardening is the most practical, foolproof way to grow a home garden. That explains why author and gardening innovator Mel Bartholomew has sold more than two million books describing how to become a successful DIY square foot gardener. Now, with the publication of All New Square Foot Gardening, Second Edition, the essential guide to his unique step-by-step method has become even better.

Rich with new full-color images and updated tips for selecting materials, this beautiful new edition is perfect for brand-new gardeners as well as the millions of square foot gardeners who are already dedicated to Mel's industry-changing insights.… (more)

Disclaimer: I read this gardening book purely for inspiration, not for how-to advice or instructions.

A recommended reference for beginners and experienced square-foot gardeners. I collected several new ideas.

I read the 3rd edition. Lots of color photos. ( )

We got 2 SF garden boxes so I'm reading this to learn more about this gardening technique. Very interesting and I'm hopeful we'll see some good results. Check with me in August. ( )
