Gulf Coast Gardening
Gulf Coast Gardening shares a wealth of information about …well…gardening. Here, you’ll find articles on vegetable gardens, landscaping, native plants, pests and beneficial insects. You’ll find DYI guides on planting times, when and how to fertilize, and tools you may need. You’ll also discover interesting new discoveries in gardening and soil management techniques. I hope you will benefit from these blogs and keep coming back to Gulf Coast Gardening.
Gulf Coast Gardening
At Gulf Coast Gardening our desire is to provide information about gardening…not only for us green-thumb (and some of us “black thumb”) veterans but also for all our beginning gardeners.
There are about 16 million people living along the Gulf Coast in Zones 8 and 9. About 25% are home gardeners, which means that home gardeners along the Gulf coast from Corpus Christi to Tampa number about 4 million. That’s a lot of gardeners.
Some of us grow vegetables and fruit, some grow ornamentals, some grow indoor plants, and many of us do all these things. A third of us are over 35, while the number of those under 35 is increasing day by day.
I am interested in your feedback, questions, suggestions, and observations. You can contact me.
My Upcoming Gardening Book
Gardening is a form of communication all its own – shortcut to the language of the heart, not the mind. Raising tomatoes, beans, roses or even native plants is a means of positive communication between all folks, young and old, physically able and physically and intellectually challenged, between all ranges of political, social, and philosophical differences.
I hope you find this book helpful and resourcesful.
