Best-selling author, Mel Bartholomew was an engineer by profession and a gardener by weekend. Using his engineering expertise, he developed a system that yields 100% of the harvest in 20% of the space.

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

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

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

    Good ideas and a whole new way to make square foot gardening a big part of my vegetable gardening. A big improvement over the original version which I purchased years ago and utilized for many years.

  • Very easy read, packed with a ton of info!

    Love this book! It will definitely be my go to source for the upcoming season. I've been a traditional row gardener in central Texas for years...our soil is still awful! Perfect book if you are tired of amending and adding to crummy soil and just want a easy, fresh start with a more productive end. Can't wait to see my results!

  • Wonderful book!

    I bought this book earlier this year after hearing about it from a friend. It is great! I have really enjoyed it. I built several raised boxes and had a great vegetable garden. I built more this fall and can't wait until Spring. This makes gardening much more fun that the old style. Now I can focus on the plants, not the weeds! I bought several more for gifts for friends and relatives who like to garden.

  • Need more for beginner gardeners

    This is a valuable tool, but it lacks information I want as a beginning gardener, specifically: How does one know when the harvest is ready for items that grow in the ground (radishes, potatoes, etc.). Otherwise, this is a very good book.
