THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. When you first hear the name, Gardening with Confidence, you might think it a bit cocky, but it’s not meant to be. The action was given to me by my husband, David, as he watched me work in the garden. He said, “You really know how to garden with confidence.” He told me that I make it look so easy—he was always my biggest fan.
I didn’t always garden with confidence. At first I was driven by the desire to really know how to garden, not just to be schooled in design or plant culture or pruning basics. I wanted to understand what it is to garden, but I worried too much whether I was doing it right.
After a while, I learned there isn’t really a whole lot I can do to mess up. If you alleviate this fear of making mistakes with a little logic and forethought, you can avoid making horticulture flubs.
Excerpt from my book, Gardening with Confidence®–50 Ways to add style for personal creativity:
Confidence-building comes in using the right tools, preparing for the elements, and visiting other gardens and local arboreta in your area for ideas of what grows well in your area. Meeting other gardeners, talking with the staff at your independent garden center, reading regional blogs, and even chatting on garden forums will do even more to boost your confidence. But most importantly, confidence comes from faith in yourself to get out and dig.
And speaking of ingenuity, check this out! And guess what else? The Convertible Pruner + Lopper aren’t even available in stores yet! You will be one of the very first to own one!
