The rationale of the Gardeners HQ site is to provide information on how to grow and care for plants that are frequently growing in the garden.
The site carries general growing guides for over 600 genera of plants, and more specific guides on the more popular garden species of flowers, herbs, vegetables, and fruits.
In addition to the 'plant growing guides', which provide information on sowing, locating, and caring for your plants, the GardenersHQ site also carries garden feature articles to help you attract wild-life to your garden, and to add wonderful year-long color to your garden.
Future topics will be aimed at organic gardening, growing plants in containers or small spaces, Square-foot gardening, raised bed gardening, and landscaping.
There are many reasons for gardening. Some people find it relaxing, some do it for exercise, others are more interested in the results gained from their efforts, such as enjoying beautiful flowers in the garden or eating their delicious home grown vegetables.
Perhaps one of the main reasons that people garden is to feel at one with nature and mother Earth. Surely there are few things more satisfying – other than your own family of course – than sowing a seed, nurturing the seedlings, and watching them turn into a fully-grown, beautiful creation.
Some of the main reasons that people give as to why they garden are:
Brussels sprouts, scientific name Brassica oleracea, are a hardy, slow-growing, long-season vegetable belonging to the Cabbage family.
Geranium sanguineum is a perennial that blooms with pink flowers in the summer. It is known by the common names of Bloody cranesbill, Blood-red cranesbill, or Bloody geranium.
Canna is a half hardy perennial that is often grown as an half-hardy annual in the garden. It is commonly called Canna Lily or Indian Shot.
All of the plants featured on this site can bebe navigated from the navigation tabs of this site, but here are some garden plant growing guides to get you started:
