  • What a fantastic and eye opening book!

    From JoannaPoli
    Coming from a Mediterranean family and having a father who was a avid old school gardener, a lot of my perspective of how hard creating a garden was thrown out the window when I read this book! Highly recommended and my confidence level is way up now! I hope people will share their experience of their gardens in pictures on social media apps like instagram to continue feeding us newbees more confidence! Just search #Squarefootgarden OR #SFG to see growing gardens! Thanks Mel for sharing your years of experience and knowledge and what I see as wealth!
