Garden bloggers tell their stories

– Posted in: Recommended Links

This past September, Stuart Robinson of Gardening Tips ‘n’ Ideas interviewed several garden bloggers to find out what got them started. Just in case you are as far behind in your reading as I am, the intro is here, and you can easily follow the links at the top of each post to find the rest. Since I am a nosy–er, curious, person, I was very glad to learn a bit more about some of my favorite writers, and to be introduced to a few I didn’t know.

And I think Stuart was a smart cookie to find a way to keep his blog going during his vacation by promoting a sense of community among garden bloggers. Kudos!

About the Author

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

Shucks ladies!! What lovely things to say.

I too enjoyed your series on the “Pioneering Bloggers”, Kathy. It was great to read of those who have forged a little of the gardening blogosphere that we can all enjoy and to hear a little of the history of some of these esteemed gardeners and bloggers.

Kudos back at ya.

Stuart is lots of fun. He does some interesting things with his blog. Never a dull moment! I too thought it was neat to learn more about some fellow gardeners.
