beginning gardening PDF guide
Do you dream about growing a garden, whether it’s part of your backyard or in containers on your fire escape, but don’t know where to start?
Do you research gardening online and get overwhelmed by the huge amount of information out there?
Do you want a simple, fun, and straightforward approach to gardening at home so that you can dive in right now?
That’s why I wrote this guide! It’s part heart, part 20 years of digging, experimenting, and planting, and harvesting!
It includes much of the knowledge I've gathered in my experience as well as answers to workshop participants' questions. It turned out to be great resource (one I wish I'd had when starting out!) and I'm offering it up to you here. :)
At 17 pages, it's designed to be simple, straightforward and packed with useful information, including links to dig deeper and learn more. I promise you: Less overwhelm and more satisfaction. Less frustration and more success. Less work and more harvest.
It includes everything you need to for a grand adventure -- planning, growing, maintenance, troubleshooting. Also includes a page dedicated to gardening with kids as well as a garden planning grid and printable worksheet to track your seed sowing (year after year), transplanting and harvest.

This little guide is EVERYTHING!!
I planted my garden today, holding onto those pages with my dirty hands, like my garden depended on it!! I learned SO much, it would not have been the same without you
A gardening jackpot!
This gardening guide is a real jackpot of information that has taught me SO much more than I expected. My husband and I have been seat-of-our-pants gardeners for several years now so I wasn’t sure how much we would truly stand to gain from it but we both poured over every single page and were so amazed at how much it has to offer! Not only is it extremely readable and well organized, it is visually appealing with wonderful diagrams and images to compliment the flow. I know we will be keeping it on hand and coming back to it time and time again for reference. Our favorite part? The section on including your kids in your gardening adventures to inspire love and learning - we can’t wait to get started planning our family garden together! This guide easily gets five stars from us!!
Everything I needed to know to start my garden!
I've had many failed attempts at gardening over the past decade and I had nearly given up until I found Nici. I watched her gardening adventures on Instagram stories and felt inspired to try again, especially now that my kids want to be involved. Nici's guide is gorgeous, easy to follow and only contains the info I really need to know. I can tell she poured her heart into it and I'm already well on my way to creating my own little garden at home. Thank you, Nici!
