Answer: Gardening is lots of fun and it is always a learning experience from year to year, so don't be too intimidated. You might find any of the books in the "Dummies" series helpful, but particularly "Gardening for Dummies" to get you started and then maybe the specialty books on annuals and vegetables. The following web site http://plantfacts.ohio-state.edu/ offers a searchable database about gardening and growing things, and the National Gardening Association http://www.garden.org web site includes many helpful articles as well as the searchable Q&A section. These should get you started. Enjoy!
