Welcome to PlantersPlace! You’ve come to the right place to learn about gardening. The purpose of the site is to provide information about the art and practice of gardening. Regardless of your level of gardening knowledge and experience you will find features and content that will help to maximize your future gardening efforts.
At PlantersPlace we see our users as a community. Whether you are commenting on one of the blogs, or posing a question to our Expert Gardener, we promise to treat all thoughts, ideas, and questions with respect. Each time you visit the site we suggest that you first check out the “What’s New” section in the upper right-hand corner of the Home page below the navigation bar. It is where you can learn about the site’s newest features and content.
PlantersPlace provides a number of ways to learn about gardening and to make a contribution to the community. Here are some of the site’s key features:
Planters Blogs: The blogs are themed around topics such as Containers, Perennials, Pests, Roses, and Vegetables. Each blog is about 500 words, interesting, and fun to read. The bloggers are gardening professionals. Readers are encouraged to add comments. We suggest signing up for an RSS feed for your favorite so you never miss a new column.
Video Gallery: We’ve created more than 100 instructional gardening videos. New videos are being added all the time. Many are under 5 minutes in length. The video player can be adjusted for sound and can be tuned to fill the screen. All videos are formatted for iPad or Tablet viewing in case you wish to take the lesson into the garden. The Video Gallery makes it easy to search for the videos you want to see. Feel free to bookmark your favorites.
Planters Podcasts: This is the site’s newest tool. The podcasts provide gardening information in an easy to learn audio format. Just download the lesson of interest to your MP3 player or stream them from the site, and then listen when and where it is convenient to do so.
Your Garden (within the Planters Community): When you register at PlantersPlace you will be given a personal page where you can upload your photos for either community or private viewing. It will also automatically organize all the questions you’ve previously asked of Marianne Binetti, the PlantersPlace Expert Gardener, for easy reference.
Ask the Expert: We are especially proud to have a professional gardener and author, Marianne Binetti, as our Expert Gardener. When you’ve looked everywhere for the answer to your gardening question, it is wonderful to be able to just ask Marianne. Of course, we suggest you use the site’s "Search" function first to see if someone has already asked the same Q because Marianne has answered more than 2,000 inquiries on PlantersPlace!
