What is square foot gardening?

Square Foot Gardening is a simple and unique method of raised bed gardening. It was developed by Mel Bartholomew in the 1970’s as a more efficient way to garden. The seeds or seedlings are planted in clearly marked 1x1 square foot plots, hence the name.

The size of the mature plant determines how many plants go in each square foot. For example, smaller plants such as carrots, radishes and onions may be planted 16 or more per square where larger plants such as broccoli, peppers and tomatoes have only one plant per square or may even use multiple squares for one plant.
