Garden Blogs I Dig

Visiting a garden blog gives you a peek over the proverbial garden fence—and perhaps even a conversation with the gardener. Listed below are some garden blogs I enjoy reading, starting with those from Austin, followed by other U.S. blogs, and rounding out the list with garden blogs from around the world.

Consider this a mere sampling of all the wonderful garden blogs being published right now. So many new ones have debuted in recent years that I haven’t been able to keep up with them all. My hope is that you’ll find this list useful primarily as a jumping-off point for discovering new blogs.

Enjoy your garden visits!
