    Default Square foot gardening.

    I'm sure this has been discussed a million times before but I love the look of this pdf. Has anyone any first hand experience & tips. I hope the file can be helpful to others who are considering this system.

    Thanks for posting this. I started growing in raised beds last year and this is just the ticket!

    I'm considering using this system as my growing space is limited. I've got the book on loan from the library at the moment and its quite interesting, although I'm only 73 pages in so I'll see how it goes

    I'm trying that system this year and Moon Planting (just ordered Under the Moon 2010 from Amazon) so thanks for the link. I've saved a copy to read later off line. More info the better. Worked out my grids and am getting some metal hoops this weekend to put into ground with garden twine to mark out the squares. Just checking what the soil needs in each square foot for each type of plant and what follow on veg can be planted after cropping.

    PS Thanks for your tip on the B&Q for rain diverter kit on way to Whitkirk. All sorted now.

    I tried planting by the moon last year, bought the book & calendar then lost the will to live. I couldn't keep up with it. My problem not the system.

    I hadn't thought about the different pH level requirements in the soil......thanks for that.

    Gad you got your diverter sorted.

    Thanks for that BM, I 'might' be venturing out of pots soon because our last big fish has died so there's a chance the pond will be filled in.
