At Direct Gardening, they will make you a gardener, and hopefully a successful one. You can find your hardiness zone, which helps choose appropriate plants, and can get loads of tips to improve your chances of success. They sell a tremendous variety of garden life. If I sounds a little skeptical of success, it is because I myself have never managed to keep a plant alive for more than a week in my whole life. I did have a cactus for a year in college, but I think it was dead and I just couldn't tell.
