On his TwitTip blog Darren Rowse challenged people to come up with ten must-follow tweeters for their own particular niche. Naturally, I immediately thought of the garden tweeters.
I found it pretty challenging to decide on ten, because most people who tweet (that is, use Twitter) don’t limit themselves to one topic. So should I pick the ones that tweet most often on gardening topics, the ones with the best gardening blogs, the ones that tweet the most often on whatever . . . Do you see the difficulty?
I finally decided to put the Texas garden tweeters in their own separate category. Austin, Texas has more garden bloggers than any other city, but they don’t all use Twitter, so I threw in anyone else from Texas along with them.
Then I pretty much went through my timeline for the last 24 hours and added everyone that seemed to be about gardening. I’d like to know about any other gardener who’s on Twitter that’s not on this list. And my apologies to anyone that I’m already following that I somehow missed while copying and pasting and switching between screens.
Not in any particular order . . .

If you’re already on Twitter, you know the deal. For those of you not yet tweeting: if you click on any of the above links, you will be taken to that person’s profile page. On the right sidebar you will find a brief biography and a graphical representation of the people that person follows. On the left you will see their chosen image (photo or avatar) and once you are registered with Twitter, a button under their image to click if you wish to follow their updates.
