Here’s a running list of helpful, credible resources to help you on your gardening journey.
Your State’s Cooperative extension Website
Since I’m in North Carolina, I’ll include the link to ours (based out of NC State University). Every state has their own, usually affiliated with a university. This should be where you go FIRST for reliable, science-backed gardening information. Typical topics covered: planting instructions, pests, plant diseases, gardening information specific to your growing zone.
- Grow Veg – **this is my all-time favorite gardening YouTube channel
- Garden Answer
- Growing a Greener World
- Gardener’s World– **this is an EXTREMELY informative program from BBC. I learn so much every time I watch it.
Don’t underestimate what your neighbors, parents, grandparents, friends, and local nursery owners, master gardeners, and farmer’s market vendors can teach you! Be open to trying new things and do your own research to see what holds water.
