seed GROW project at www.GardenBloggers.com
Over on the www.GardenBloggers.com blog I announced a project called GROW, for active, personal garden blogs. What we'll be doing is gathering a number of garden bloggers within the U.S to grow the same climbing nasturtium seeds provided to us by the online seed catalog, Renee'sGarden.
Throughout the growing season the participating garden blogs will be posting updates about the project and sharing their experience and tips growing the same seeds in their garden. The idea behind the GROW project is to create a sense of community among garden bloggers who may only know each other online by getting them to share the same plant.
We have a few spaces left, so if you'd like to participate check out http://grow.gardenbloggers.com and read the details about the project and see if you'd like to participate. Unfortunately, space is limited so it is being restricted to active garden blogs, that means garden blogs that are regularly updated. Blogs for or by garden businesses are not eligible at this time because we have a small amount of the nasturtium seeds to distribute to the participating garden bloggers.
If you're an active garden blogger and can commit to posting once a month and sharing pictures, video and text about how your plants are growing in your garden don't hesitate to sign up.
Curious? Visit http://grow.gardenbloggers.com to read the details and see what garden bloggers are already signed up to participate.
On a related note... over my Chicago Garden blog I've got a couple of seed posts that maybe be useful.
