Square foot philosophy and practice has many things going for it. After playing about with mixes and so on, I realised that the square-foot system totally relies on the supply of quality compost. That has been my biggest hassle - can't make enough of it but to plant in that confined space, the nutrition has to be there for the plants. Mel Bartholomew (the developer) reckons compost from 12 different sources - oh boy that is the challenge! See his books in the local library - worth a read and tips galore.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
