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!

    Organic REV
    The first thing to understand about REV is that it is not an ordinary humic acid product that is chemically-extracted from leonardite, lignite, or other coals. Rather, it is a 100% naturally-occurring carbon, humic acid & fulvic acid source - along with exceptionally high levels of naturally-occurring microbial biomass that can increase nitrogen efficiency by up to 25%.
    REV replaces depleted soil carbon & bacterial biomass - and absorbs nutrients to make them more readily available to plants via their root systems.

    Hoselink
    Tired of tangles? Over the mess? Make watering your yard easy with Hoselink's Retractable Garden Hose Reel - Australia's top-rated Hose Reel, now in the US!
    The Retractable Garden Hose Reel is a wall-mounted unit featuring a high-quality spring-loaded hose that automatically rewinds on command.

To lengthen, simply walk the hose out further and stop wherever you want.
    When you’ve finished, lightly tug the hose to engage its automatic rewind system. The integrated self-layering mechanism takes over, preventing the hose from overlapping as you walk it back in. It’s that simple!
    The Retractable Garden Hose Reel arrives at your door as a complete package with everything you need to get started. It comes fully equipped and pre-fitted with:
    Hoselink's easy-to-use, Quick-connect Hose Fittings
    Comfort 8-Pattern Flow Control Spray Nozzle

Easy to follow

This podcast has great information, in an easy to follow presentation.
I like to go to the nerds for gardening advice, and I think she does her research well and finds helpful information to share, while not claiming to know everything. Best of all, she loves Jesus, which is important to me because it affects how we view everything in life, even gardening.

bikerbird2 ,

Thanks 🙏 for kindness

Yea finally I got a person who care to take the time to explain. How to garden a great way. Bless you and family

a ronan fan ,

Gardening info but not Jesus stuff please

Good info for gardeners but not interested in the jesus stuff she preaches. If I wanted that I’d go to church. A complete turnoff
