    Bought on a whim. So did not have high expectations.
    If you want a book on square foot gardening that covers the topic in any depth this is going to disappoint. There was a list of disadvantages to this type of garden but no practical information on how you might work around these risks. There's a chapter on weather but only one example of a solution.
    If you are simply looking for an overview then this is probably enough.

    "Square foot gardening uses a smaller area to produce more plants, crops, and flowers. If you wish to grow a large number of crops, square foot gardening is the way to go." Tom Ford does a very good job in covering the basics of square foot gardening. In this short book he discusses the history, benefits, advantages and disadvantages to this method of gardening. He covers the layout, location, climate warnings to consider before planting or harvesting.
    Although I agree with the book overall, I found him to be very vague about measurements or use of additives. For instance, "You need to water your square foot garden every day so that it isn't affected by the weather conditions in the summer." Most plants do not need to be watered every day in the summer, especially if they have a thick covering of mulch about two or three inches to protect the roots. Nor does he cover how much water to use every day; this is important because overwatering will kill the plants.
    He gives sound advice about testing the soil to see if it is acidic or alkaline, but then gives vague direction regarding adding vinegar or baking soda. "For example, if you would like to grow crops that prefer acidic soils, you can add some vinegar to your soil to lower the pH value of the soil. On the other hand, some plants thrive in soils that are more alkaline. If you would like to increase the pH value of the soil you can use baking soda." How much vinegar or baking soda is needed to do this? He never explains.
    I also found some erroneous advice regarding seeds: "Seeds- if you are growing plants from scratch you would need seeds to sow them. Be sure to dig them deep into the soil because birds tend to pick the seeds from the soil." Correction some seeds can't be buried deep, in fact, certain seeds barely get covered in soil to grow. It is important to follow the directions found on the seed package itself which will tell the gardener the appropriate depth.
    This book was basic in teaching the concept of square foot gardening. I would definitely recommend this to a beginner who is interested in gardening.

    1.0 out of 5 stars I tried SFG and it sucks. " And Mel's reputation suffers 13 Mar. 2015
    By SFG4U Kim Roman - Published on
    Yet ANOTHER person trying to ride the coattails of Mel Bartholomew, creator of the Square Foot Gardening method. PLEASE, if it's NOT written by MEL BARTHOLOMEW, it's NOT the real thing.

    What's the harm? If you use this method and are unsuccessful you will blame . . . Square Foot Gardening. You'll tell your friends, "Yep, I tried SFG and it sucks." And Mel's reputation suffers.

    I am a certified Square Foot Gardening instructor and tired of doing damage control from books like this.

    I have a good few on Toms books now as we have a vegetable patch out our back and I love the way he writes. Very informative and easy to follow. I love the way he explain the benefits, the history and the disadvantages. The planning section with diagrams are extremely helpful! There is a step by step guide and tips on what to grow. Excellent gardening book for beginners - I cannot wait to start!
