Gardening Resources



Gardening improves the outside appearance of your living space, cultivates healthy living habits through growing and eating your own produce, and has positive benefits from the exercise you get while planting and maintaining your own garden. The following guide provides the latest tools and resources you need to learn about gardening to fit your lifestyle. Adults, seniors, and children can find gardening a healthy and exciting hobby to pursue.

Gardening Resources

If you're looking for some sites chock-full of information about all sorts of gardening, the online homes of some offline gardening resources, or even some reference tools to help you plan and plant, you've come to the right place.

If you don't feel comfortable shopping online, most gardening suppliers will mail a catalog to your home. Take a look at the Web site of your favorite supplier to see if this option is available to you.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Many online garden communities and magazines have a list of garden retailers or vendors from which you can order products. They often list products by subject category or location.
  • Some sites have a "zone finder" or "region locater" that can tell you what plants are best suited to your region. Using plants suited to the climate and soil where you live is important to planning a successful garden.
  • Gardening may be beneficial to your health. Take a look at "Go for Green" from the Evergreen Foundation.
  • For another health-based article, visit and "Healthy Gardening" from the University of Vermont Extension for more information.
  • Most garden sites are geared toward adults and seniors. For kid-friendly gardening information, check out the "Gardening for Kids" section of this guide.
