Format: Paperback
I bought Mel's book last fall, and it's inspired me to scrap the way I've been gardening for years and go the Square Foot Gardening route. This year I may still keep my traditional rows for a couple things, but I can see myself switching to this method in full over the next couple years.
Right from the Intro you start to see the benifits / reasons why this way of gardening is much more efficent - Mel's not trying to sell you on some fad Diet, or some scheme - it's all tried and true and it all makes perfect sense when you're reading. From the 'soiless' Mel's Mix to the 6" of planting depth for most veggies (Including Tomatoes.)
I'd highly recommend this book. DO a search on google for square foot gardening and you'll find thousands of practitioners who support and endorse the method.

This book has wonderful ideas and makes the whole process of starting a garden simple and easy. The first year when starting up is what will cost the most (less than $200 for us) and maintainance should be about $10/year after that! With the amount of produce expected, it is more than worth it. I have checked this type of gardening out on other websites and nobody can compare with the technique in this book. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone!

I love this book! I have never had the time or place to have a garden and I love fresh veggies. I put my boxes on my deck so I just have to walk out the door and I can water and then hopefully harvest. The book gives you step by step directions from start to finish, explaining why you are doing the steps. I bought the started veggies from my greenhouse so for most of it I don't have to wait until they sprout. My tomatoe plants have fruit already. 2 boxes will give me tomatoes, peas, beans, beets, carrots and radishes to eat and a few petunias for color....Try it you'll wonder why you never bought the book years ago.

This was an awesome book when it first came out, but obviously is a bit dated now. The revision is just as great as the original, with lots of updated information. Anyone looking to garden in raised beds or containers should have this book on their shelf!

I first got his older book from the library and I was fascinated with it. So informative, simple and logic..loved it.
So I decided to get his new book and wow....it is even better and easier. I never was much of a gardener but with his book ....I am developing a green thumb!
Definetely worth the money!

I highly reccommend this book! It is well illustrated and full of great gardening info.The plans for the gardening boxes are simple can be adapted to fit in small yards where tradditional "garden rows" would be impractical. I am definitely going to try this method.

Format: Paperback
I never planned on gardening as an adult after being drug to my parents garden summer after summer as a young person just to get eaten alive by the bugs. I've tried a couple times since I've been married and figured out costly/ineffective ways how NOT to garden and decided to stop after negative returns on investment. This book has completely changed my mind and I already believe I'm a complete success before the snow is even gone. Just reading the first few pages of the intro completely sold me on Mel's gardening philosophy completely! My bride is on board with me and I'm sure my children will really enjoy this too! Thanks Mel! Positively, [...]
