Linking Policy

by Kathy Purdy · 5 comments

If you wish to link to me from your website or blog, go right ahead. There is no need to ask my permission.

If you want me to link to you, the following criteria must be met:

  1. Your content must be of value to my readers. It should relate to one of the following categories:

    If it is for the interior of your home, forget it, unless it is for houseplants or seed starting.

  2. Your website must adhere to Google’s quality standards for websites.

In short, I don’t exchange links. I add helpful resources to various subject pages.

I have a rock garden. Last week three of them died.

We are an up-and-coming garden center and garden design company called Serene Gardens in Grand Island, NY. We do have somewhat of a specialty niche of Japanese gardens and Japanese gardening, although all aspects of gardening, especially Cold Climate Gardening, affect us. Vegetables that thrive in our local colder climate is an increasingly popular topic among garden customers and friends. Your blog is a great resource for quality information. Thank you.

If anyone is interested in our gardening, pruning, designing etc. please visit us at:

Hello From The Center of Canada, Winnipeg, Manitoba

I suppose it could be said that my web site would fall quite nicely under the heading Cold Climate Gardening. Gardening in the central prairies is a challenge at the best of times. Our growing season is very short, yet I am committed to my garden makeover of 400 feet. I am also committed to sharing with other gardeners the plants that can and do survive in a zone 3 climate. Take a peek at my web site and gardening blog (which is relatively new). Thanks for your consideration.

Happy gardening!

Dear Kathy,

I am writing to introduce a website I developed called It is an online garden journal enabling gardeners to keep notes, plant lists, photos and task lists and supported by a plant database and general garden maintenance calender. I have been gardening for over 25 years and wanted something like this for myself – a centralized application leveraging cloud technology. It is not a blog. I am a fan of blogs, love to read them but feel it best to leave public garden writing to talents such as yourself. I do intend to post links to blogs on the site or users can add their own links in their own space. It is also private but if users choose to “share” photos and entries they will be able to do so. I hope you will check it out and let me know what you think. If you think it has value to your followers (I think it will!) I respectfully hope you’ll consider adding a link. Please feel free to let me know your questions.

We would like to be considered to receive a link from you. Our site is very informational by variety and we also have a blog on our site with articles within. We have been in the greenhouse business for over 5 generations and this site is for seeds for the home gardener.
I tried to post to a blog site on yours Gardening and then Glenn was the site, it said that I tried to post on the wrong page. I could never find the right page.
Please let us know if you will consider us .
Thank You
L. Busch
