25 Gardening Essentials

by Grace Bonney

This month is all about GREEN so I’ve been loving the chance to bookmark all of my favorite gardening accessories. I may not have a yard to cultivate larger scale things, but I’ve been elbow-deep in potting soil this season getting my kitchen garden and about a dozen pots of begonias and ferns ready for the windowsill. To keep my own gardening going and hopefully to encourage anyone else out there to start planting, I rounded up 25 of my personal gardening essentials. From tools and kneelers to bags and plant markers, there’s a little something here to get you started with any type of weekend gardening. Here’s to all you green thumbs out there… xo, grace
