The Q&A Archives: New to Gardening

Question: HI, I have never had a garden before, is there anything that you could tell me to help me out? This is a school project and I have a great interest in gardening! It seems very fun but I have no idea how to start or what plants to pick for my area. Thank you so much for any information you can give me!



Here's the web site of an article from National Gardening magazine that should help you get started:

Planning a Vegetable Garden: How to design and build a vegetable garden that really works.

You might also want to get a book like "Gardening for Dummies" or "Vegetable Gardening for Dummies". All the books in the "Dummies" series have great, down to earth, useful information for novices of all sorts!

Good luck!
