This tip is a great one, but could be a hard one. I love talking to other gardeners! They give wonderful advise. Gardeners in your area, will know which plants will grow in your area. They have tips, that you don't know about. I have meet a few gardens though church. I also started PaGardens to meet people and pass tips and ideas.
Do you know many gardeners? How did you get to know them?
