Publisher's Summary

Gardening is easy: Discover how you can grow a perfect vegetable garden, and enjoy fresh, organic food every day.

You don’t have a green thumb. You’ve never managed to keep a houseplant alive for more than two weeks. You don’t have enough gardening space.

Don’t stress about your lack of experience or previous gardening fails. Everyone has to start somewhere, and now you have the perfect opportunity to do.

In Vegetable Gardening, you will discover:

  • Techniques for choosing the right place for your garden based on your climate zone, water access, and sun-shade ratio
  • Tips on how to decide on the size of your garden, including smart solutions for making the most of a small gardening space (with a list of high-yield plants that don’t take up much space)
  • A comprehensive guide on gardening soil: discover how to determine which type of soil you have, how to prep it for planting, and which plants grow best in a particular soil type
  • Tips on how to lay out your garden - discover which vegetables love to be neighbors, and which to keep far from one another to ensure the best growth (and a rich harvest!)
  • Expert maintenance strategies for keeping your garden clean, healthy, and pest-free
  • Harvesting tips and tricks, including a guide on how to prepare your garden for the next season
  • A complete list of plants to grow in both warm and cold areas
  • And much more.

Even if you’re not a complete beginner, you’ll want to take a peek inside this guide: you’ll discover some innovative gardening techniques...and you might finally find out why some of your plants refuse to cooperate, no matter how much care and time you give them. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Incredible Resource

I was amazed by the amount of detail in the many areas. From choosing the type of garden, to soil, to picking which things I want to grow to weather etc etc etc. Thank you Stephanie for putting such an incredible book together. It takes away all of the guess work out of what to do with my garden. There are also these wonderful drawings just in case i was unsure of something. Great added detail! I'm excited to get started!

A must-listen

Being completely honest, I have never kept a house plant alive for more than a few months. This led me to Stephanie's book - and I'm so glad I found it. So much more goes into keeping plants alive than water and light, and this audiobook goes into depth in all the key areas. The harvesting tips will be particularly useful for next season's strawberries...

Covers everything!

I have been gardening for years, and I learned so much from this book. I especially like the section about what plants you should plant close to one another. I had never thought about that before, and it completely changed the productivity of my garden. If you are a seasoned gardener or new to gardening, this audio has it all. The narrator also has a great voice and excellent pacing—a joy to listen to.
