Garden blogs, part deux

by Caroline Brown

It's been a busy couple of days, so I'm cheating a bit — here are a few more garden bloggers that I like.

Bookish Gardener:

I have a garden in Zone 5 (or so I'd like to think on optimistic days)…or is it Zone 4? I'm an attorney (by trade) and a mother (by great fortune). I've been a gardener for a relatively short time, but a bookworm all my life.

Horticulture, Jan Perrone's organic allotment and garden blog:

I'm Jane Perrone, and I am a keen organic allotmenteer and gardener.

I also work as deputy editor, news and politics at Guardian Unlimited, the website of the Guardian newspaper in London, where I write for News blog about blogging, technology and other things.

This blog is for writing about the things I don’t get to cover at work: the trials and treasures of nurturing my garden and allotment.

I write about the things I wanted to read when I set out learning about horticulture: how do you set up a wormery? What the hell is a barbietola di chioggia? How do I become a gardener if I only have a windowsill in my flat?

(As best I can tell, an "allotment" is a British term for a piece of land that is leased specifically for agricultural purposes.) 

Garden Design Online:

Jane Berger is a journalist and landscape designer based in Washington DC & Woods Hole, MA.

A graduate of the University of Michigan and the George Washington University Landscape Design Program, she formerly worked as an editor, writer, and radio news correspondent for the Voice of America.

  1. Providing links is not “cheating.” That’s the whole point of blogging- networking.

  2. I second the motion! Just today I did a post and included a link to Earth Friendly Gardening and News Target as part of the story. The more info. related to a topic, the better, then readers can pick what they want to read,save, follow-up. I just took a look at these other blogs, nice but a lot of terms etc…I don’t have a clue about. Guess I will stick with veggie cooking and lots of yarn. I did have a yarn shop many years ago called the Yarn Tree, that’s kind of plant-related hahaha.
    Cheers Caroline and BFN 🙂
