Now that I have a yard I’m thinking about planting my fist garden around my front porch. I know nothing about gardens and my planters last year survived about a month before they withered and died. This spring I’m doing it right by reading up on what to plant and when to plant it.
Here are some of the great books to help novice gardeners like myself get planting.
The city gardeners handbook by Linda Yang
What grows here? by Jim Hole
Rodale’s basic organic gardening by Deborah Martin
The nitty-gritty gardening book by Kari A. Cornell
Planting a garden in spring by Jenna Lee Gleisna
The 20-30 something garden guide by Dee Nash
