Join a Garden Club

Join a Garden Club

Gardening can give you endless hours of pleasure but what is even more rewarding is sharing the experience with someone who loves it as much as you do.  Unless you have a family member or neighbor that shares your passion then you probably don’t have anyone to talk to and share with.  This is why you should join a garden club.  You can meet new people who share your interests and maybe learn a thing or two.

Sharing Secrets

Most gardeners are more than willing to share their secret for growing lush beautiful plants.  They have learned through trial and error what soils and nutrients to use for what plants and how to make their plants thrive.  If you are struggling with any aspect of your garden then there is someone around who can help.  The same holds true for you.  You need to be willing to help others with gardening problems they are facing.

Membership Perks

If you join one of the larger gardening clubs like National Home Gardening Club then membership has its privileges.  You can try out gardening supplies at nice discount and you get subscriptions to gardening magazines packed with tips and info.  There are some conditions though they aren’t so bad for instance if you get some free tools you will have to post a review that other members can read.  You can also check out reviews from other gardeners you trust to see if a new product is really worth the money or not.  It is a very large community of gardeners coming together to share their insights.

Starting New Projects

If you are looking at what you should do with your garden or looking for a new project then joining a gardening club can help you find new and innovative ideas.  Other members can help you with what you need to finish your current project or help you with something new.  Upload a picture of your garden then wait for ideas to flood in from other members.  You can get advice on everything from tools to how to build a gardening shed.  There is lots of information in the members only section and you can check out other members’ gardens from all over the country.

There are plenty of perks to joining a gardening club, if you don’t want to join a big national club then check with your local garden center to see if there is one nearby.  You can get together with local gardeners and discuss the same things with them.  It’s a great way to meet new people who share your passion.
