    Default Gardening Blogs

    Well, you all know I'm fed up and with today's daytime tv falling into the "another day same crud" category I chanced upon an excellent blog. Best one I've seen in a while and with very regular postings. I would have said a wee birdie told me about it but here's a link to it anyway . mudandgluts

    Anyone else find a blog worth a look,please post a link on this thread.

    This is one I like but that's because it's in the region. Allotment Heaven

    I don't read that many blogs. Prefer reading books on gardening, reading forums or watching stuff on YouTube. There's a really good one on container gardening which I read ages ago but I've forgotten what it was called

    LOVE growing food to eat in my little town back garden. Winter update: currently growing overwintering onions, carrots, lettuce, chard, salad leaves, kale, cabbage, radish, beetroot, garlic, broccoli raab, some herbs.

    Aww AP! Thanks!

    I love allotment blogs/diaries - it's great to read how everyone's doing and picking up tips. The tool rack and hooks for bamboos in my shed were pinched from a diary on another site.

    My favourite blogs are
    Allotment Diary : Grow your own vegetables : Guides, tips and videos
    Garden Betty | Diary of a Dirty Girl
    Real Men Sow | a cheery allotment blog.
    Down on the Allotment

    Would love to find some others to read.

    Noos made me chuckle (lots) but I don't think she updates it any more Reluctant Gardener, day 1: Very overgrown | Mandy Sutter - Writer
    Kristans is very inspiring but I don't think he has updated since June https://kgarden.wordpress.com/

    There seem to be lots that are great and then stop. Cottage Smallholder and Soilman are 2 that I really liked but seem to have stopped.

    This one's good too: www.grow-veg.uk

    I'll stop now...
