A New Site For Gardeners

A new site for UK gardeners has been launched this week by Gillian Carson of My Tiny Plot. UK Veg Gardeners is a community site and basically does what it says on the tin, it's a site for veg gardeners here in the UK. There's a forum, links to news items, photos of people's veg and groups among other things. Although there are other gardening sites, these tend to be huge covering the whole world, or not specialised enough covering a huge spectrum. Gillian wanted to create a smaller, more intimate site for veg gardeners in the UK. The site has only been launched this week but already is proving to be very popular with many people signing up to become members and lots of content being added. I wish Gillian every success with it, I'm sure that it's popularity will continue to grow. Why not pop over and check it out?

I was thrilled to bits at the back end of last week to receive an email letting me know that I am Dobbies blog of the week. They've given my blog a lovely write-up too. It means a lot to me to know that people find my blog interesting and that they enjoy reading it. I'm so grateful for all the lovely comments my readers leave too, they make my day, so thank you all.


  1. hey Jo...I checked out the new site and had a quick look..I am very impressed that you can find lots of answers there....I'm just hoping that this doesn't replace my readers giving me tips when i ask!!!!

  2. Hi Jo, congratulations on Blog of the Week, that's an impressive write up and well deserved. I've joined the new website, looks good with loads of new people joining up.

  3. Well done on blog of the week Jo!

  5. Congratulations on award for blog of the week!
    I have checked the new gardening site, and although I'm not from UK, I will probably visit it every now and then. I think there will be a lot of useful information.

  6. I'm really impressed with the forum and amazed just how quickly it's taken off.
    Well done on the blog of the week award from a former recipient! Flighty xx

  7. Glad to see that you've joined the site, Tanya. I think there's space on the internet for lots of different blogs and sites. I'm sure your readers will still give you plenty of good advice.

    Thanks, Damo. It made my day to be featured that way. Glad to see you on the new site too.

    Thanks, Green Lane Allotments. They did such a lovely write up about my blog too.

    Thank you, Anna. It always makes my day to know that people enjoy reading my blog. Glad to see you on the new site too. I'm sure it will prove to be a very popular site.

    Thanks, Vrtlarica. I'm sure you're right, even though the site is aimed at veg growers in the UK, people from other countries will be able to pick up hints and tips from it too.

    Thanks, Flighty. I'm amazed at how many people have joined the site in such a short space of time. I'm sure it will grow and go from strength to strength.
