The garden blogging world seemed to take a short hiatus from posting cool stuff when spring first arrived, but now they’re back in force, with all kinds of new ideas, hot photos, and inspiration we can bring back to our own homes and gardens.
The last couple weeks have seen some great lists of gardening folks on Twitter:
@jeanannvk (Jean Ann Van Krevelen) is an author and social media guru for Cool Springs Press, and she’s been posting weekly recommendations for gardening peeps on Twitter to follow. Here’s a few of her top tens:
I haven’t been tweeting much this winter (despite all the rain, there hasn’t been much of a slow season this year!), but I’m just starting to really enjoy it again, so if you’d like to connect with me on Twitter, I’m @NCoastGardening. I’d love to follow you back and see what you’re up to!
Gorgeous container planting ideas:
The Personal Garden Coach (Christina Salwitz or @Arcadia1 on Twitter) has been getting well-known in the gardening community for her striking and bold container planting schemes. She uses foliage colors with confidence and creates some lush and unusual designs that I have been so inspired by.
Check out her Black and Tan designs, or her ideas for using Tricolor Sage in a foliage combination. Love it!
I keep on hearing about Growing a Greener World with Joe Lamp’l and Patti Moreno, but since I don’t watch much TV, I didn’t have much of a hope of ever catching it. So I was pretty stoked to find it available to watch online!
And if you haven’t yet seen Shirley Bovshow’s Garden World Report, you’ve got to stop by and check it out. Shirley’s got such an infectious sense of enthusiasm and fun that I always find myself smiling after I watch. The thing I love best about the Garden World Report is that it’s not too sterile like I find most television shows. Shirley keeps things moving and it never sounds scripted or like she’s bored by what she’s saying.
