Every one that gardens needs a book where they can write down their experiences gardening. In this book you can keep all the records for your garden in one place.
This is one of the best series of books on gardening. It tells you what you need to do each month in your garden, with your houseplants, with your trees, with your herb garden, with your shrubs. It is broken down into areas of the country. I have this one listed here but you can search for the one for your state where you live.
This so handy to have. You will have your clippers right with you while you are in your garden.
This is a great thing to have for a gardener. I can’t tell you how many unnecessary trips I have made to the garden shed before I purchased my garden tote. It keeps everything right there right by you. It’s a must have for the beginning gardener.
Having a green house is wonderful when you have more flowers than you can bring into your house in the winter. I have had a green house for years and I love mine. This is a green house that comes as a package. It seems to be a very nice one. We had to build ours because when we were ready to buy one there were not nice greenhouses like this one.
Garden Hand Tools
Here is a great garden tool set. It has everything a beginning gardener would need to get started.
Here is a really cute and useful wooden and wire basket. I was able to find one of these in a flea market and I just love it. I use mine in the garden carrying in my bounty of fresh produce and I use it in the house for different things. This little basket is hand-made in North Carolina.
I found this several years ago and I just love it. After a long day of gardening my hands would be so dry and cracked, I would use this and the next day they would be back to normal. The Healthy Feet is great for those summer months when you wear sandals and you feet get dry.
Here are a few great ideas for the beginning gardener in your life.
