How do I start a garden?

What's a good online resource for brand new gardeners in Minneapolis? We need something that starts with the basics.

Thanks for the question.

In these uncertain times, gardening can be very therapeutic. But for me to give you good answers to your question, I have a couple for you:

1). Are you thinking of growing flowers or vegetables?

2). What is your garden site? Will it be in pots on a patio or in ground?

3). How big will your site be?

In the meantime, take at look at:
