My Recommended Gardening Products

These are only recommendations. Use this list to get products that will help you or use as a reference to buy if you are needing these items.

Get a few products at a time. You don't have to buy everything at once. Start small and what is most necessary for your goals this garden season. As you grow each season, then grow the products and equipment that can be used from season after season.

Growth Helpers

Soil testing is just about the most important thing you can do in your garden.  You will know how much nitrogen and other nutrients you have in your soil.  Without this, you are growing blind and cannot add amendments effectively.

Herb Harvesting & Preserving

These hand-held electric trimmers are so helpful for harvesting herbs like lavender, mint, oregano, thyme, and sage. By having these ready to use, I have no hesitation in keeping my herb garden trimmed and being able to harvest quickly and easily. 


Dehydrators have been essential for preserving herbs and other foods quickly in the kitchen. I use throughout the year as I harvest and dry herbs to save money for the rest of the year. Harvesting and preserving food has been a savings and a health benefit with gardening.
