Square Foot Gardening 101: The Boxes

Because I am no expert on gardening, I’ve enlisted the help of Belinda Jensen the Square Foot Gardening pro from Home Gardens To Go to teach us all how to have successful, virtually weed-free gardens this year! Belinda was trained under Mel Bartholomew (Mr. Square Foot Gardening, himself), teaches square foot gardening classes in Utah, and trains anyone who wants to become Square Foot Gardening certified! If you haven’t met Belinda yet, make sure you check out the first day of the class posted yesterday which introduces Belinda and goes over the basics and benefits of Square Foot Gardening. Remember, I’ve decided to dedicate all of this month to gardening and specifically this week long class with Belinda…because this is YOUR year to have a thriving hassle-free garden!

Alright, today is all about boxes. What you can use to make square foot gardening boxes, tips for making your own, information on how you can buy them, box accessories that will help protect and extend your garden, and the boxes NUMBER ONE benefit!

Tomorrow’s video will be all about how to CORRECTLY mix the soil (Mel’s Mix). If you’ve had marginal success with your Square Foot Garden-you NEED to watch this video. Most people make their mistakes in mixing the soil and tomorrow Belinda will show us how to do it CORRECTLY.
