What is Square Foot Gardening?

When you're tight for space and still want to have a garden, that's when Square foot gardening comes into play.

Wikipedia explains it this way:
Square foot gardening is the practice of planning and creating small but intensively planted gardens. The practice combines concepts from other organic gardening methods, including a strong focus on compost, densely planted raised beds and biointensive attention to a small, clearly defined area. This method is particularly well-suited for areas with poor soil, beginner gardeners or as adaptive recreation for those with disabilities (Bartholomew, 2005).
The phrase "square foot gardening" was popularized by Mel Bartholomew in a 1981 Rodale Press book and subsequent PBS television series.
This is a chart that shows the basics - how many plants to plant in one square foot.

Thankyou for this! I am a beginner gardener but intend to run square foot gardening techniques in the 'conservatory area of the house we will be building soon (hopefully!) It is a fuel less house and can be seen on our website www.theearthcoveredgreenhouse.moonfruit.com
All the best and God bless, Karen
