One of the bestselling garden books ever is fresher than ever! Ready to inspire a whole new generation of gardeners. When he created the "square foot gardening" method, Mel Bartholomew, a retired engineer and efficiency expert, found the solution to the frustrations of most gardeners. His revolutionary system is simple- it's an ingenious planting method based on using square foot blocks of garden space instead of rows. Gardeners build up, not down, so there's no digging and no tilling after the first year. And the method requires less thinning, less weeding, and less watering. "I found a better way to garden, one that's more efficient, more manageable, and requires less work," Bartholomew explains. Not surprisingly, his method quickly received worldwide recognition and has been written up in every major newspaper and gardening magazine. His book, which served as the companion to the nationally acclaimed television series, has sold over 800,000 copies. Now freshened with new illustrations, the book Ingram calls "the largest selling garden book in America" is reissued for the delight of a whole new generation of gardeners.… (més)

Simply a Great Gardening Book, February 24, 2005

55 Reviewers pretty much say it all, but I just had to add to the applause. I have used this book as a reference for over 20 years, and have used Mel's methods in the sands of Florida, the gumbo of Texas, and now the 'barely there' soil of Northern Virginia. And what have I gotten... production and ease!

Based in part on the French Intensive method of gardening, you pretty much can avoid the inherent soil problems of where you live and grow veggies and flowers with little weeding and grunting.

Ideas in this book include:

How to prepare the soil (fertilizers, conditioners)

How to put together raised beds and other support structures if you want them

A guide for popular vegetables

-- how and when to plant them, including how to start seeds

-- the what-fors of watering

-- common pest and disease problems

In my opinion this easy to read book is a gardening staple good for all levels of experience. ( )

Great instruction to maximize produce while cutting down on time weeding and watering. I definitely want to try this. ( )

Excellent resource for small plot gardening. I never understood why a packet of seeds has the instructions to pour the whole packet into your row and then thin later. It seemed so wasteful! Square foot gardening is EXACTLY the kind of gardening I want to do. The book is loaded with information and diagrams and tables on plants and spacing and growing. I borrowed this from the library; but I will be buying a copy for my permanent library! ( )

This is a very good book for anyone who wants to grow a market garden, even if there is little open ground to do so. By creating squares divided into specific grids, the author provides an easy guideline for would-be gardeners, who want results without too much work. For me, I found his chapters nicely laid out with tidbits on pests, water, soil, and structures.

While I don't use too much square footing as I have plenty garden space, I've seen it in action at a neighborhood open garden, where each owner successfully follows Bartholomew's advice as gospel. His chapter on vertical gardening is eye-opening, so it's hard to go wrong with this book as a basic bible for first-timers.

Book Season = Year Round (each season has its seed) ( )
