Gossip About Gardening0

Some people have a green thumb. Some people, well… that thumb is rather black with scales on it. Whether you’ve got skills is irrelevant, though. If you’ve got a passion for plant life, you might want to bookmark DigtheDirt.com.

Founded by Cliff Sharples, the guy behind Shop.org and Garden.com, this new social networking site invites people to talk plants, flowers, gardening gear, and more. Input your own experiences, and share with others how certain plants react to certain environments. Photos and personal stories are welcomed and posted to each visitor’s profile.

Aside from the chatter, there’s a plant database, which features thousands of plants and can be filtered by over 100 characteristics. Want plants that are a certain height? Do you have super-dry soil? Want to plant something now that you’ll be eating later? Need to plan what you can plant for the upcoming weekend? Those are just some of the many features that can help you whittle down the perfect plants for your needs.

 

Of course, there’s also tons of how-to articles, landscape ideas, links to other blogs, and information on where to find suppliers in your area. The site also allows budding landscapers to connect with gardening professionals, to ask questions and share ideas.
