Square Foot Gardening

Square foot gardening is one of the latest trends in gardening. Here at Strange's, we've got one set up for you to see how they work! The basic theory behind square foot gardening is that you have a raised bed that is 4 foot by 4 foot. It is divided into 16 sections, which are used for different crops. One square may hold just a single tomato plant where as the next square could hold an assortment of herbs. It's dependant on the size of the plant. Place climbing plants at the back of the square foot garden and attach a trellis or net. Take a look at how our square foot garden is doing!
