Our Favourite Garden Blogs


Whether your green fingers are twitching for more tips, or you just like nosying into other people's gardens, there are loads of places to get your fix online.

We've rounded up of some of our favourite gardening and 'grow your own' blogs from around the web...

My Tiny Plot

My Tiny Plot
Gillian's website does exactly what it says on the tin - it's her diary of a small vegetable patch. Of course, size doesn't matter when you're growing so much lovely food - the site includes delicious sounding recipes and cooking advice as well as sowing and growing advice - and her 'close up' style of photography shows just what beauty there is in the detail.

Midnight Brambler

You might already know Lia as the gardening expert in the Guardian's Weekend magazine, but this is her personal blog. Lucky Lia has a massive garden and an allotment, but the gardening tips are complemented by a nice mix of home life commentary and cooking tips that keep it real. And don't miss the peach tree pollinating song...

Grow Our Own

Grow Our Own
The down-to-earth, chatty and cheerful blog posts and pretty pics on this gardening photoblog belie the self-description on its 'about me' page. As a depression and anxiety sufferer, Carrie uses 'allotmentherapy' to keep the demons at bay... and her frank descriptions of everyday life in and around the garden - on down days as well as up - make for a great read.

Little Green Fingers

Little Green Fingers
Dawn's garden, like many others, is home not only to plants but to playhouses. Yes, her mission is to get children hooked on gardening. There's loads to inspire here - not just the fun she has with her own family, but tips on making the most out of visits to big gardens - and links to loads of other resources for green fingered kids and their parents.

Snappy's Garden Blog

Snappy's Gardens Blog
And finally, just to show we're not sexist, this one's written by a man! When he's not working, David - we're not sure why he's called Snappy, but we think it's probably to do with all the photos - takes us on tours of his garden and allotment as well as various shows and open days. Luckily for us he usually takes his camera with him, so we get to share his joy.
