Growing Superb Gardens and Plants

      Welcome to Garden Hobbies, a great place for you and your plants........

Gardening News:


Exciting Times! The annual seed search has now begun. It is indeed an exciting time for gardeners. As the snow flies outside our windows, we sit by the fireside and dream of beautiful flowers in full bloom, and a bountiful garden filled with our favorite herbs and vegetables. You may be surprised to learn that gardeners begin their annual seed search on Christmas day. On December 25th online garden stores see a huge uptick in traffic on this day. As we progress through the month of January, more and more gardeners seek out and buy their favorite seeds, along with something new to experiment with, to test and expand gardening skills. What are you waiting for!? Start your search today.



Important Note on Your Seed Search...  Many of you begin your seed search every year right here from our site. Some of you may have missed our big announcement in November. After 20 years in the business, we have closed our garden store. It has been a great experience with many wonderful, long term customers. We now move on to retirement, so we can spend more time with our favorite hobby.... gardening! And, we will continue to grow the depth and quality of Garden Hobbies, and our other content sites.



In Search of Seeds! Each year, we begin our gardening season with a search for seeds for the upcoming year. It's a lot of fun browsing seed catalogs, and surfing the internet for a treasure trove of promising garden seeds. Whether you like to browse through a seed catalog by the fireside, or surf online, make plans now to find the seeds that you want to plant this spring.



Indoor Plant Starts - Starting seeds indoors to transplant later, is one of the early joys of gardening. Why let the garden stores have all the fun, when you can start your own seedlings!? While winter goes by, review the basics of seed starting, and seedling care. As a rule of thumb, most indoor starts should be planted six to eight weeks before the last frost in your area.



Greenhouse Dreamin' Every gardener dreams of a greenhouse in their back yard. Winter months are the perfect time to dream those dreams. But, why settle with just dreaming? There's a greenhouse for just about every budget.



Have you ever taken a soil pH test in your houseplants? Why not? Each pot can result in wild swings on the pH scale. An off balance pH in your houseplant's soil, often is the answer for a sick plant.More on soil pH



Read the Good Book.... There's plenty of good books on gardening. Reading a book on gardening, or your favorite plant, is a great way to help the winter months go by quicker. There's always something new to learn when you dig into gardening related books. There's also plenty of tips and learnings in our growing list of "how to" pages. So, make sure to surf our site and stop back often.
