New to gardening? I have two good book recommendations that are easy to read and make common sense gardening suggestions; Beginner’s Illustrated Guide to Gardening and The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Small-Space Gardening. Both books have great illustrations, speak in basic terms, and show super-easy growing techniques.
Beginner’s Illustrated Guide to Gardening by Katie Elzer-Peters – In this book, beginner’s can learn how to plaint containers, tie stakes, grow basic plants and much more. Katie demystifies the trick to reading seed packets, plant labels, fertilizer labels, and zone maps.
The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Small-Space Gardening by Chris McLaughlin – This is a great book for beginners and experienced gardeners alike because it focuses on getting started in a small space. Chris shows that gardens do not have to be huge, they can be simple, common sense places where you can reap a bounty of both beauty and edibles.
Kick off the spring garden with a good garden guide book to teach you the basics!
