Do You Dream of Having Your Own Backyard Garden But You Don’t Know Where to Start?
Or, Have You Tried Gardening Before, But You Feel Frustrated With Your Lack of Success?
If you’ve ever felt like that before, then I know how you feel because I’ve been there too.
Does this sound familiar to you?
♦ You feel overwhelmed at the amount of information about gardening and you don’t know what you really need to know to grow a successful garden.
♦ Your plants keep dying and aren’t producing any vegetables but you can’t figure out what you’re doing wrong.
♦ You really want to have a successful backyard garden, but you feel like you’re doomed to be a “brown thumb” gardener.
No matter what your gardening experience has been in the past, I don’t believe that anyone is doomed to have a “brown thumb” forever. With the right information, you can learn how to grow your own successful and productive garden right in your own backyard.
Imagine being able to . . .
♦ Step out into your backyard and pick a fresh, sun-ripened tomato you grew yourself.
♦ Try new varieties of vegetables and old heirlooms that you can’t find in a grocery store.
♦ Know exactly how your food was grown and know that it is natural and chemical-free.
♦ Eat vegetables that you picked the very same day and know that they are the freshest possible with all of the nutrients intact.
Introducing Beginner Organic Gardening – The Easy Way!
If you want to grow your own vegetables naturally, this book will give you the tools you need and the simple, step-by-step instructions to go from seed to harvest to grow a successful beginner garden.
Hi there! I’m Lori Elliott, and I wrote this book because of my own experience as a beginner gardener. When I first started trying to plant a garden, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, and I made too many mistakes to count.
But because of all of those mistakes I made in my first couple of years gardening, I’ve learned a lot about what not to do as well as what you should do for a healthy and productive garden. I wrote this book because I want to share what I’ve learned so that you can have a successful garden without having to make the same mistakes that I did.
My main goal in writing this book was to keep things as simple as possible. Gardening can be a pretty complicated topic when you really get into all of the details about how to plant vegetables, how much to water them, how to fertilize your soil and control pests and diseases naturally, etc. so in this book we stick to the simple basics that you need to grow a successful beginner garden.
Here’s a look at some of the topics we cover in this book:
- Choosing the best types of seeds and seedlings for your garden
- How to plan out your garden so you have the best chance for success
- Getting to know your soil and building healthy soil
- How to create a compost pile
- Companion planting tips
- Instructions for when and how to plant seeds and seedlings
- Watering tips
- Tips for controlling weeds, pests, and diseases naturally and without chemicals.
- Information on when to harvest your produce and how to store it best
- How to save seeds for next year’s garden.
Is This Book Right for You?
This book would be a good fit for you if:
♦ You’re a beginner with no experience and you want simple steps to grow your own vegetable garden.
♦ You’ve tried gardening before but you haven’t been successful and you’re looking for the missing puzzle pieces to figure out why your garden isn’t working.
♦ You have some garden experience but you want to learn how to take care of your garden organically without using any chemicals.
This book probably isn’t the best fit for you if:
♦ You’re an experienced gardener. (Most of the information in this book is geared towards beginners, so if you’ve been gardening for several years then you might already know a lot of the information in this book.)
♦ You want information about using pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals. Only natural methods are covered in this book, so you won’t find any information about using chemicals in your garden.
FAQs . . .
Q: What type of gardening is this book about?
A: This book mainly covers vegetable gardening. Herbs are mentioned occasionally, but the focus is on growing organic vegetables. This book does not talk cover flower gardens.
Q: Will this book still help me even if I don’t have a big yard and only want to plant a small raised bed or container garden?
A: Yes. The tips in this book apply to all types of gardens, whether you have lots of space or whether you just have room for a couple of tomato plants on your patio.
Q: Do I have to spend a lot of money on tools and supplies to follow the instructions in this book?
A: No. While there are some basic tools and materials you’ll need for gardening (things like a spade for planting and a hose for watering and the cost of seeds and seedlings), my goal with this book was to make it accessible for any gardener even if you’re on a tight budget. The instructions outlined in this book give you options to choose from depending on how much or how little money you want to invest in your garden.
Q: Will following the steps in this book take a lot of work?
A: Yes and no. There’s always some work involved with gardening, so there is some level of effort required if you want to have a successful garden. I’ve always tended to be more of a “lazy” gardener myself, though, so I’ve tried to use the least complicated, easiest methods in this book and I’ve included options for some steps depending on how much time, effort, and/or money you want to invest in your garden.
