Spring is here, and fresh new starts are springing up in gardens – big and small – everywhere. You’ll find below a sampling of some of our favorite gardeners, their sites, and educational videos. We hope you enjoy their tutorials as much as we do, that you learn lots, that you’ll help to support their ongoing work, and that your gardens produce nutritious and delicious fruits and vegetables throughout the growing season.
Each of these gardeners brings informative and insightful content to interested learners. Learn to grow in-ground, in raised beds, vertically, hydroponically, and in greenhouse environments. Have fun with sprouts and microgreens. Discover new plant varieties, experiment with companion planting, and troubleshoot challenges in your quest to become an ever better gardener. Grow everything from salad greens to potatoes, and so much more.
Gardening is a wholesome hobby with great rewards – fitness and fun and a food supply. It encourages physical activity, and there is a whole lot of joy in the success of the harvest. Gardens also help to build a safety net with access to affordable food grown from seed. Given the price pressures of inflation, and the risk of interruptions to supply chains, successful home gardens yield delicious edibles, and peace of mind too.
