Hello and welcome to my Square Foot Gardening blog/website!
Introduced to me by a friend, by asking if it was square ft gardening that I was doing. At the time I had never heard of it, and he told me a book had been written about it.
My thanks goes to Farmer White who pointed me in the right direction on the internet, with his instruction manual.
I live in Gloucestershire, and have always had an interest in gardening and have been looking for a way of managing a small area, but at the same time being productive. I also have a keen interest in hard landscaping, paving, decking and the like. Coming across square foot gardening has been the answer to my prayers. I hope to keep a diary on a month to month basis as to how I get on.

The principle behind square foot gardening is to divide the ground into 1 ft squares and to have a raised bed.
The ground referred to in future as the bed is managed from the side so the ground is never stood upon and compacted.
