12 Budget Friendly Must Haves For Every Beginner Gardener Featured Image

Here in the Lonestar State of Texas, warmer days have arrived! All of our local markets and garden centers have all of the gardening goodies and plants on display! If you are new to the gardening scene, knowing the right gardening tools and necessities to purchase is important to ensure that you have the healthiest and most productive garden possible! Therefore it’s important to know the budget friendly must-haves you’ll want to get this year!

Gardening can be a pricey venture but, it doesn’t have to be. A great way to save money is to shop online. Amazon is my go-to site for my gardening needs. They have excellent prices on quality gardening tools and other must have items! By ordering online, you don’t have to fight the hectic crowds in public which will give you more time at home to do all the other fun gardening stuff such as preparing for your garden.

For plant purchases, you can purchase seed starting kits online but, the more mature plants can be purchased at your local garden center.

In this article, I’ll go over all the gardening must have items to get you started and before you know it, you’ll have the garden you’ve always wanted – without it costing an arm and a leg!

Let’s begin…
