Copyright Policy

All material copyrighted © by Pam Penick. Unauthorized reproduction prohibited.

I welcome links to my site and offer plenty of link love (links to other sites) myself—it’s the lifeblood of blogging. Please refrain, however, from lifting my photos and reposting them on your site or other publication without my express permission. Reposting a photo without permission, even when providing a link with it, is both illegal and unethical. Thank you for respecting the work I’ve put into this site.


Photo Permissions

If you’d like to request permission to use one of my images in your publication or on your website, please contact me. I regularly sell images to magazines, books, and other publications, and I’m always willing to negotiate a fair usage fee.


Review Policy & Disclosures

Digging is a personal account of my own experiences, not only regarding my garden but regarding any nursery, book, service, website, plant, and/or product I recommend. I write for my own purposes. I am not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites, or any other topic. This blog does not accept any form of advertising, sponsorship, or paid insertions. Any endorsements I make come from my own experience, and I receive no compensation for endorsements. I do not accept solicitations for links to other websites, and I link only to sites that I personally have found useful, interesting, or entertaining.

I do accept and keep review copies of books from publishers. Rarely, I will trial plants in my garden for a grower or nursery or review a product sent to me from a supplier. In such cases, I will clearly state in my review what I received for free for review purposes, and my reviews will always be my own, honest opinion.

I write gardening books and promote those on my site. But Digging is not a commercial blog. Its reason for being, and its continued inspiration, is simply to share my personal experiences as a gardener.
