There are so many awesome gardening blogs out there that here at WhatShed HQ, we came up with the decisions to make another list of amazing gardening blogs that we feel will help inspire you to do something amazing with your garden.
Richard Jacksons Garden
First up we have Richard Jacksons Garden. The first thing that impressed us with this gardening blog is that it actual has a team of gardeners behind it. That means you get many different points of views and pieces of advice from different folks. Speaking of advice, you are more than welcome to get in touch with any gardening questions you have and one of the good people at Richard Jacksons Garden will do their very best to help you out. With some great tips and pieces of advice, along with some fun suggestions, we had a great time looking through this blog.
One part that needs special mention is the part about lawn care. Not to many gardening blogs take the time to talk about taking care of your garden. Such as if you should mow it at all! So we found this very interesting to read.
Growing Nicely is a very impressive blog from the professional gardener, Jill Anderson. She might not class herself as a pro gardener, but she has actually studied horticultural and garden design and she has even been part of two of the show gardens that are at The Hampton Court Flower Show! So that is quite the resume she has, which made us take real notice of all the advice she gives on how to plant, grow and take care of your flowers. If you want some pro tips then you will find them here at Growing Nicely.
While there is plenty of blog posts and photos from her own garden and gardens she has worked on, we also got a real kick out of her thoughts and ideas about events such as The Chelsea Garden Show which was really cool to read about.
We really like what Debbie has done with her Lavender Hedge blog. She says that she was heavily influenced by Geoff Hamilton who was famous for being on BBC’s Gardener’s World. We think this is fantastic and you can tell right away that she does have a very big love for not just flowers, but also growing her own food. Which is a huge part of this blog? If you want to be able to grow some prized potatoes, then Debbie has some great hints and tips for you that we are sure you are going to love and find very useful.
Above all else though what makes this a blog we love is the way she writes. She has such a friendly and fun writing style that you cannot help but read one blog post after another.
Lou J Nicholls
Louise Nicholls has a very well designed blog that many people in the WhatShed office have been raving about. We loved reading all her posts about her own garden as well as the tips and ideas that she offers for other people. But just hearing about how Louise made the transition from jewelry design to head gardener was fascinating stuff. If you want to read a garden blog that has a bit more of a personal touch then we are sure you will really enjoy this.
In addition to the posts about gardening and growing your own food. Louise also likes to share tips on how you can protect your garden from all the little pests that mother nature throws its way. We are sure this is something many of you (we included) will find useful.
Ellen Mary Gardening
Next up we have Ellen Mary Gardening. Ellen is a lady who is all about gardening. To give you an idea of just how much this talented lady loves to get out in the garden. She has a lot going on and seems to be at her happiest when she is encouraging others through her writing or face to face into getting in their gardens and growing some lovely flowers and tasty food. There is just so much to take in here that it can be a little overwhelming, but we mean that in the best way possible. If you want a blog that you can easily sit and read for a full hour then you will struggle to beat this one.
Those of you who are into growing your own food will get a real kick out of this as she has all kinds of great, fun and tasty suggestions for you.
Sally started her life as a gardener with a few simple things in her garden such as peas and beans. She loved the taste of the food she had grown and that has blossomed into a love for gardening as well as a blog that is a ton of fun to read. Sally Nex has really won us over with her witty writing. As well as sharing the different things she has grown and then cooked with. She gives you the mental tools that you need to make this happen in your own garden. We feel that this makes, Sally Nex a great blog for those looking for a little bit of inspiration or some advice for growing their own food.
One of the most impressive sections of the blog is who Sally lets you know that she kept her greenhouse producing food all through the winter! It goes without saying that this is really cool and something many of us in the WhatShed office wished we could do.
Peonies And Posies
Julie King is a gardener who as well as knowing exactly what she wants in her garden is a whizz with a camera. This is evident from some of the truly amazing photos that she has of her own garden (and from what we think are some others as well) She has done a great job in not just showing off her garden, but in also giving some great hints and tips for how you can make your own garden look just as nice.
Her blog has many different sections with our favourite being Flower Favourites. Here she showcases some of her favourite flowers and some nice and tasty treats that she has managed to grow. If you want a little inspiration then this is a blog that you have to have a good look at.
The Sunday Gardener was a blog that was highly recommended to us and we must say we are very happy we checked it out. the Sunday Gardener is Carol Bartlett and she loves to share the many years of gardening knowledge that she has with her readers. We really like how friendly this blog is and Carol does a wonderful job in holding the reader’s hands and giving great advice on how you care for your garden. We are sure that you are going to get some very smart ideas for your own garden from Carol.
One of the most amazing blog posts we read was her thoughts on the plight that bees are currently facing in the UK and all over the world.
As well as being a real gardening enthusiast. Noel Kingsbury is also a teacher, writer, researcher, and lecturer. He wants to make it his mission to make sure that people are learning the right skills when it comes to growing and maintaining a garden and we think that is really cool. If you want to learn as you read and maybe even stop for a moment so that you can think about what you just read, you will love Noels Garden. It is a thinking man (or woman’s) kind of blog and that is what we really like about.
We had a lot of fun with this blog and if you want to read one man’s mission to make sure gardening is done properly then we think you will enjoy it too.
