Gardening For The Complete Novice

When I was a kid growing up on the farm, Dad would send me in to town to pick up parts for our equipment. I hated that job.
 
It’s not that I didn’t like mechanical things, because I did, but whenever I picked-up a part, I dreaded the conversation with the parts guy. Nine times out of ten, I felt stupid and embarrassed because I didn’t have a clue about what all the "parts lingo" meant.
 
Once I got older and gained some experience and knowledge with mechanical things, I could hold my own at the parts desk, but I learned a valuable lesson on how to treat people who are novices in a particular field.
 
For those who are new to the world of plants I know that Latin names, fertilizer ratios, and bugs are just some of the things that scare people who have never gardened. As a result, I will be offering workshops for those who feel a bit intimidated about trying to grow plants for the first time.
 
So, if you don’t know the first thing about a seed, soil or fertilizer, my plan is to help you feel comfortable with entering into the plant world.
 
So if you have ever felt like I did at the parts department make sure that you sign up for "Gardening For Complete Novices".

Who knows, it could be a stepping stone to a career in horticulture!
