Garden Myths - Learn the truth about gardening

Garden Myths – Meets Facebook

First of all, let me thank all of my regular viewers for making this such a popular site. We are approaching 3.5 million views, and that is fantastic.

If you are not a regular viewer, please subscribe by entering your email in the top right hand corner, under “Subscribe to this Blog”. This will provide you with an email notice each time I make a new post.

We have had a lot of good comments on the site, but comments on blogs are not a great way to communicate and discuss topics. I want to expand the ability to connect with you, my readers, and to connect all of you to each other. To meet this goal I have set up a Facebook Group, called Garden Fundamentals.

Facebook: Garden Fundamentals

As you may know, I run two blogs that have overlapping topics and I wanted to combine both discussions in one place. I had to decide on using one name or the other, and Garden Fundamentals won out, mostly because of some other changes and announcements I will be making in a couple of months. If you have not visited my other blog, have a look at

Please join Garden Fundamentals Group now!

I will continue to answer questions in the comment section of this blog, but the Facebook Group will allow some new and better ways to communicate.

  • Suggest new topics for this blog – I’d love to know what interests you
  • Start your own discussions on myths that have not been discussed here
  • Post links to false advertising
  • Ask about the validity of new products
  • Add your own myth discussions
  • Talk about any gardening topic -there is more to life than myths 🙂

I am a regular on several gardening Facebook Groups and they are a great way to learn and discuss. I learn something new everyday from those groups and it is also a great way to get to know people with similar interests.

Please join the group and let’s have some fun!

I live in southern Ontario, Canada, zone 5 and have been gardening a long time. Besides writing and speaking about gardening, I own and operate a 6 acre private garden called Aspen Grove Gardens which now has over 3,000 perennials, grasses, shrubs and trees. Yes--I am a plantaholic!

I hope you find Garden Myths an educational site that helps you understand your garden better.

    Robert: This may be the end of mt enjoyment reading your blogs. But I want nothing to do with FACEBOOK. I’d purchase any book you publish, in which you gather your comments into groups.

    • The good news is that this blog will not change, so you can continue to enjoy it.

      The problem with websites is that there is no good way for my readers to start a conversation they are interested in. A medium like Facebook works quite well for that. And I am sure some people will enjoy the Facebook group and rarely come to this blog.

    Using an RSS reader (in my case ) gets one the ability to follow your posts at ones own pace without adding to the email piles. A very similar user experience to subscribing via email, and I’m sure you will have others doing the same, so don’t count those subscriber numbers too closely as an accurate account of who is following you, there are more 😉
