Gardening Forums

One of the best gardening tools that is at a gardener's disposal is the internet. Just about everything you ever wanted or needed to know about gardening can be found on the internet.

If you're a creative person and enjoy being around artsy types and people who like to grow their own food you'll probably love this forum. When I first came across it I immediately fell for it because of the color scheme. It just looks the way you expect a gardening forum to look. Since the forum list isn't as extensive as the one on GardenWeb I won't list some of the forums of interest because they can all be easily seen on the main page.

You can also refine a search and look for forums that are more specific. For example there is a forum for people who are interested in growing poppies that's part of The choices available to us gardeners on the internet are almost endless, so fire up your browser and find yourself a community to be part of and grow something.
