  • Welcome to Talk Gardening!

In gardening there is so much to share, and so much to learn, that having a place to do this makes obvious sense. We hope you enjoy Talk Gardening, and get value from some of the special ways it is integrated into GreenPlantSwap.

You'll find any posts you create here will appear on your Grower page and the relevant Plant Finder pages, provided you tag the plants you mention. And if you have listed any of these plants for swap or sale, they will automatically appear alongside what you have written.

We believe in large-format, quality photos at GreenPlantSwap, because gardens and plants come to life in fabulous colour detail. So feel free to upload the best, high resolution photos you have.

However big or small, gardens and the plants within them are interesting. Not just in how they look and how they came to be, but in how they grow and change with each season and the efforts of the gardener.

As Christopher Lloyd once said, gardening 'is so many-sided that even if we all started off with similar rectangular plots, the end-products would be completely different'.

Garden design, collecting plants, hobby, growing things, food for the table, dealing with wildlife, weather and the seasons ... whatever interests or challenges you, share it with us.

We'll be pleased to hear!
