For Those
New To Gardening



While this site isn't targeted to those new to gardening, I do have some information that should help you get started.

Basic skills and information

How to start a garden - check out the bottom of this page for some books I found very useful when I began gardening (and some really good newer books for beginning gardeners).

Composting - not only is composting good for the soil, it can save you a lot of money in the long run and give you healthier plants.

Planting zones - you'll need this information when you begin researching the edible plants you'd like to try growing.

Gardening advice - have a question? Want to help others not so far along as you are? This is the place to ask questions and share your advice.



Useful online courses

I have not taken any of these classes, but they looked like they would be right for your level!
