New Gardener Guide

Updated: Mar 27

Being a gardener is so exciting, there’s endless plants you can grow and it is so beneficial for you and your family! We wanted to do our part and help you get started so that you can have a thriving garden right off the bat!

If you don’t already have one, you will want to pick your spot. A vegetable garden ideally needs 6-8 hours of direct sunlight conditions. If you have a small space and a garden spot is just not something you have right now, try containers! You can grow many different vegetables in different pots and containers.

Take notice of the temperature of your garden as well. Is there an area that is windy and cold, or sheltered and hot? Different plants can tolerate different conditions, so this is an important part of planning.

Next, you will want to check your soil. How is it? Sandy? Sticky? Hard to dig? Depending on what it is, you can use other mediums to optimize your soil. You don’t need to stress about this too much the first year, as vegetable plants can be pretty resilient and will learn to cope with the soil they are placed in. Consider putting compost in your garden once a year as well to help boost your soil!

Know your frost dates. We know, its really hard not to get antsy and plant your garden as early as possible. But the damage that frost leaves can be really deflating so check to make sure there’s no risk of frost before planting your garden.

Last but not least, remember that gardening is a journey, you will learn as you go. It will be so worth it, and we are so proud of you!
