cath, nearly everything you need is here on www.agardenersforum.com

and if you can't find it, do a forum search and i can almost promise you that if it isn't here, one of us has posted a link to it.

now, if you want quick answers without doing a lot of surfing, post your question in the main areas of the forum, depending on what you are trying to ask (landscape, fruits and veggies, etc) and you will amost suredly get an expert answer quickly.

The best advice I can give you , is start a compost pile . There are threads on how that is done under Organically Speaking , so I am not going to bore you with that here . Until you have a compost pile made get some compost at the garden center in the form of composted manuer or mushroom compost . If you know anyone that has chickens or rabbits that is the best form of barnyard manuer there is . Add these to your soil as well as crushed leaves , it will decompose and feed your plants naturally . I did that for the first year after I moved here , then used the leaves and other compost to enrich the soil to where I can get things to grow alot better now .

Check with other gardeners in your area and the local nurseries and garden centers to find out what type of plants grow well in your area .
Talk to your neighbors who have plants and flowers , chances are if it will grow in their yard it will grow in yours with a little tender loving care .

There are lots of online resources and if you have a cable system that gets HGTV check out Paul James in Gardening By the Yard . That guy is good and funny too . There are other gardening shows full of useful information . Then the best thing to do is just putter around this site and read and ask questions of other members .


Successful gardening begins with trial and error and ends with dirty knees .
Happy Gardening !!!!!
