Favorite Online Gardening Resources

Like many of you, I am constantly seeking new resources for advice on gardening and landscaping. I’ve scoured the web for the best of the best and thought it was time to share my favorite resources with you.

Garden Answer
The queen of annuals, perennials and just about anything related to home gardening, Laura with Garden Answer, can inspire you for weeks. One of the most popular YouTuber’s in the garden space, with over 440,000 subscribers, she educates, inspires and demonstrates through video on hundreds of topics. She grew up in a garden center as her parents own Andrew Seed in Ontario, Oregon.

Here is one of my favorite Garden Answer videos on air plants.

Follow her on Facebook, and Instagram.

Floret Flower
A marketer, published author, entrepreneur, Erin Benzakein from Floret Flowers never ceases to amaze me. What began is a small flower farm in Oregon, has blossomed into a floral empire with seeds sales, bulb sales, books, journals and gardening tools.

“We’re a family farm and family is at the heart of our business. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to spend our days working together, surrounded by a team of caring individuals who share our dream of bringing more beauty into the world.” – Floret Flowers

Here are a few of her published books and journals:

Homestead Brooklyn
I stumbled across Homestead Brooklyn on YouTube initially but now I love to follow her on other social media sites as well. If you want to know anything about houseplants, Summer Rayne Oaks is your girl. With over 750 houseplants in her apartment, she has experienced a variety of houseplant issues and shares her expertise with her followers.

Here are a few of her published books:
Sugar Detox Me
How to Make a Plant Love You: Cultivating Your Personal Green Space Pre-order 

Follow her on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Pinterest.

Deanna on Instagram
One of my favorite gardening Instagram accounts, deannacat3, now has nearly 100,000 followers and is about to launch a new blog featuring her beautiful home garden in the central coast of California. She hasn’t quite built the empire as the ladies listed above, but she is well on her way. Her Instagram stories are the best, plus she has chickens!
