Selecting a Garden Site

— Written By and last updated by

Thinking about gardening for the first time or just want to figure out what to do better in your vegetable garden, we’re working on a series of short videos to help you grow vegetables in a home garden. After deciding to grow vegetables at home the first step to a successful vegetable garden is selecting a garden site.

This short video will give you some tips on what to consider when selecting a garden site. For more information on getting started, you may want to read the NC State Extension publication “Vegetable Gardening: A Beginner’s Guide.”

If you already feel comfortable with gardening, but have some questions about when to plant what, you may want to read the NC State Extension publication “Eastern North Carolina Planting Calendar for Annual Vegetables, Fruits and Herbs”.

More short videos will be coming soon.
