Best Gardening Websites: Online Tools To Guide Your Green Thumb

From Mother Nature Network's Ramon Gonzalez:

A Google search can help you find many online gardening resources, but the amount of information can be overwhelming, and there's no guarantee that the top search results will be written by knowledgeable gardeners or even answer your questions.

Experienced gardeners have their favorite gardening websites and resources bookmarked for easy reference. If you're just getting started with gardening, you may not know where to start. Below we've compiled a number of websites and resources to help you get your garden off the ground this year.

With so much free gardening information available online, there's no reason you can't grow a successful garden. Visit and bookmark these online gardening resources to grow your green thumb this year. Got a favorite site we didn't mention? Leave a note in the comments.
