The Hoosier Gardener has had several requests for a one-stop shop, where people can find answers to their gardening questions. We’ve gathered this info and will likely add to it as we identify more resources. These are curated items, from Purdue, Ohio State and other sources. Think about it like a Gardening 411.
Our website has a decent search function, so plug in a key word or two and if we’ve written about it, you’ll find it. Also to keep you on track, the Hoosier Gardener publishes a monthly checklist of what to do in the garden.
Thank you for stopping by. We hope to see you often. While you are here, please sign up for the Hoosier Gardener’s free, monthly newsletter. Also, let me know if there’s a gardening topic missing you’d like to see included.
