Gardening for Beginners

Dee Sewell began writing about gardening, food security, the environment and how to grow your own vegetables back in 2009 as a way of sharing her own experiences at Greenside Up HQ, as well as those of clients and learners she works with.

Although the posts are geared towards vegetable gardening, many of them form the basis for all gardening. Seeds are seeds and should be stored the same way whether they are flower or vegetable. Good soil is the foundation of all gardening and garden pests aren’t necessarily fussy whether they’re eating our roses or our beans.

The following links are to key articles on the blog and many are inspired by frequently asked questions from learners. It is hoped they will help you to garden more confidently, no matter what you’re sowing or growing.
