Go to your local library and check out books about gardening in your state/region. Something that's more regionally specific will be more helpful than some of the more general guides. Once you've found a few books you really like, you can go buy just those few. Alternatively, most local garden centers have a small book section in them. You can ask some of the store staff to recommend something that's good for beginners and contains local information too. A third option is to find a local gardening group, a Master Gardener's group, or to contact your local County Extension Office (in the blue or white pages of the telephone book). These are all people who would be happy to help out a new gardener!

I'd suggest you contact your local Penn State Ext. office
for information on your county's Master Gardener program.
The office personel will provide phone numbers of master gardeners for you to call and they will be happy to answer your questions.
