Descrizione

Not everyone with a green thumb has the luxury of a farm with freshly tilled fields or a plot of land big enough for a traditional garden that can supplement the grocery bill, but that doesn’t mean you can’t grow the garden of your dreams.

Square foot gardening is an approach to growing flowers, vegetables, and herbs that requires only 20% of the space required to produce the same yield from a traditional garden.

Most people aren’t willing to give up their whole backyard just to grow a garden. This is why the Square Foot style has become so popular. People who would only have been able to grow one or two things using traditional methods can now grow a cornucopia of fresh, organic veggies and still have plenty of room for a patio and maybe even a pool! This guide will show you how to make the best use of your space with raised beds, plant density, and a few super-secret ninja planting techniques.
