Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. Mel developed his techniques back in the early 1980s and has been teaching them throughout the world ever since. In the process, he has made improvements and refinements and continually adapted his practices to keep pace with modern times.

In this new volume, Bartholomew furthers his discussion on one of the most popular gardening trends today: vertical gardening. He also explains how you can make gardening fun for kids by teaching them the square foot method. Finally, an expanded section on pest control helps you protect your precious produce. 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.

Synopsis:

The Best-Selling Vegetable Gardening Book in America is Better Than Ever!

Square Foot Gardening works; over two million gardeners will agree. That’s how many folks have put Mel Bartholomew’s innovative grid-based method to the test over the years, and always with the same result: more produce in less space with less work.

In this exciting new edition of All New Square Foot Gardening, you’ll find all of Mel’s secrets revealed and all of his techniques explained. And you’ll marvel at how simple it really is: Create perfect soil in a raised box and plant your crops carefully in square-foot grids. No additional fertilizing is needed and virtually no weeding is required. Simply water and wait and you’ll be rewarded with two to three times the bounty you’d get from traditional row gardening. In your yard, in your driveway, on a balcony, or on a rooftop, your Square Foot Garden can be created practically anywhere. This beautiful new edition also contains all-new information on popular topics like gardening with kids and controlling pests.

About the Author

Author Mel Bartholomew developed the innovative square foot approach to gardening back in the 1970s, first publishing on the subject a few years later. His follow-up title, All New Square Foot Gardening, was published in 2005 and has since made home gardening accessible for millions. His Square Foot Gardening television show ran for five seasons on PBS. Through various humanitarian organizations, including the Square Foot Gardening Foundation and the Square Meter Gardening International Training Centers, he has helped put fresh vegetables on the table in underprivileged societies all over the world. He currently resides in California, with the Square Foot Gardening Foundation located in South Carolina.
