Many thanks to Sam and his Mom who is working on his Boy Scout Gardening badge and recommended this site.
Gardening has many useful benefits for the environment, as well as physical and mental health. The relaxing nature of gardening plus the fact that it can be an indoor or outdoor activity, make it a popular pastime for many. There are, however, people who don't know how to start and grow a garden. Fortunately, when equipped with the right information, plants, and tools, most can successfully grow anything from houseplants to floral or food gardens right in their home, patio, or yard.

Many thanks to Amelia and her teacher Carol for this recommendation!
