Square Foot Gardening
Mel Bartholomew has created his own Web site and company called Square Foot Gardening. His site is easy to navigate and full of information about the process. He now gives seminars, all of which are listed on the Web site, and you can even become a certified Square Foot Gardener. If you have any interest in intensive gardening methods, this is a great site to use for information and resources.


Square Foot Gardening
Mel Bartholomew is the guru of frugal gardening, especially for those who are space-challenged. His unique method has been around and successful for years, and his new book, All New Square Foot Gardening, makes great improvements on all his old ideas. This is a must-have if you really want a productive garden in a small (or large) space. Best of all, it's an easy read and is organized well to use as a reference right in the garden. As the garden season winds down, it's well-timed to start planning for next year.
