How to Plant a Successful Garden
A gorgeous garden flush with leafy greens, aromatic herbs and colorful vegetables bursting with flavor is a wonderful thing. There is nothing like picking a ripe tomato right from the vine and carrying it into your kitchen to slice up into a salad with a little drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. And veggies grown in your own garden just taste better than storebought, too. Plus, as the gardener tending your plot—whether in containers, raised beds or in a swath of land—you are in control of what goes into your food.
Maybe this sounds like a dream come true, but you have no idea where to start. Or maybe you’ve tried gardening in some form before only to feel like it’s harder than it looks. Just how do you get from seed or seedling to great big, glorious plants? What’s the best place for your garden? How much water do plants need? How do you fertilize them and treat pests? Help!
A New Gardener Boot Camp will help you with all of these questions—and more. We’ve taken our best beginner classes to equip you with all the tools you need to master your garden! Even better, this is an online class, so you can work at your own pace and then join a live Q & A session at the end via Zoom.
Course registration opens April 20. On April 22, all course direction and videos will be emailed to participants. From there, you have one week to watch all four courses. Join instructors on April 29 at 10 a.m. for the live Q & A session. The cost is only $46 or $42 for Gardens members.
