I am blessed with an insatiable curiosity and love of research and have spent hundreds of hours researching and testing gardening and the best gardening equipment on the market.  These items and vendors are thoroughly researched and can be recommended without any equivocation.

To be honest, I am not, nor have I ever claimed to be a big gardening expert. I used to be a black thumb and was almost certain to destroy any plant I got a hold of. Before became a little more knowledgeable about gardening, I would simply settle for whatever was available at my local big box store, or even Walmart.

I was unaware how small the selections both in plants and in pots were until I started researching and discovering sources on the Internet.

My goal on this page is to recommend gardening gear and sources that are priced really well while still maintaining a high-quality standard.  This is the stuff I discovered, use, (or in some cases would like to use).

Keep in mind, however, that these items are not necessarily all the highest-end items.  I am frugal in many things by nature, but have never been afraid to spend money on quality where it counts.

It’s super important you not only have your creative ideas, but ways to implement them. Having the proper plants, containers, or in some case growing systems is key to having a beautiful garden without throwing your money away by losing plants all the time. Okay, so now you have your space allocated and some design ideas, how are you going to make that come together?

You’re going to face some challenges gardening in a small space. Whether it is a balcony, container garden, or interior gardening, you’ll need some knowledge, specialized equipment, and creativity.

That’s where we can help.

Cutting corners by buying plants and containers that are ‘good enough’ or ‘not quite right’ is cheating yourself. The enemy of the best is good enough. I’ve come to believe that planning, growing, and appreciating plants is one of the best ways to indulge in the world’s most popular hobby, improve the decor of your home and add a little peace and beauty to your life.
