I am sharing an article I received from a gardening planning newsletter. Check it out. Utilize the information. DIG IN AND CREATE. Happy gardening. Jeana
Do you ever get overwhelmed with all the decisions that need to be made in your garden? They seem endless.
And then there are the decisions around what to buy. What supplies do you really need for your garden? Maybe you have questions similar to most of us…
- what organic pest control methods work?
- what fertilizer do I use?
- what tools do I really need?
- what irrigation method should I use?
I remember asking all of those questions when I started gardening, and back then I had no one to ask. Of course, my mom gave me a bottle of Sevin dust and I used it because I didn’t know what I know now.
That’s just one example. I really had no clue what I needed and what I didn’t. Unless you have someone beside you giving you advice, you never know.
Because over the years I found so many people asking me the same questions I wondered as a first-time gardener, I decided to make a list of my favorite gardening resources, from books to tools and beyond.
If you’re wondering what gardening books are good for beginners, or what organic fertilizer you should choose, or what tools are must-haves, I’ve created collections on Amazon with links to my favorites.

My Favorite Gardening Books for Beginners (My own book, Vegetable Gardening for Beginners, is included in this list, but there are so many other great ones here, too, many whose authors I’ve interviewed on the podcast.)
My Favorite Gardening Tools (The soil thermometer is a must-have.)
My Top Picks for Organic Fertilizers and Insecticides (I use Fish Fertilizer and GardenTone the most.)
My Most-Used Harvest to Kitchen Supplies (because you’ll want to do something with your harvest!)
Hopefully these supplies will get you started in knowing what you might need (and not need) in your garden. If you’re looking for a tool or resource I haven’t mentioned, let me know and I’ll give you my thoughts.
