Welcome to the Beginner's Garden Podcast! This is the podcast with easy-to-understand resources, tips, and information to help beginning gardeners get the most out of their gardening adventure -- big or small. When I began gardening in 2013, I scoured books and Internet resources to find all the information I could. Although good information was abundant, I had trouble understanding all the gardening lingo and sifting through the information to figure out what would work for me. In this podcast, my aim is to provide helpful information while explaining the gardening lingo as we go. I want to equip YOU to have the best start ever this gardening season!

Gardening tips for everyone

This has become my most favorite podcast! I am not a beginner gardener, but I still find something in each episode. I’ve been gardening in some form or fashion for over 40 years. My dad always told me to never stop learning and to learn something new every day. With Jill I can say I do get to learn something new! Thanks for your knowledge Jill!
