Built by real gardeners for real gardeners
Welcome to Real Gardeners, or RG as we affectionately call it.
Real Gardeners first came online in 2001.
Since then it has been recommended by many of the top gardening magazines and we have a worldwide membership.
It has remained a non-commercial site throughout this time with funds being raised via donations from members.
We are a friendly bunch at RG and hope you will enjoy looking around.
A very popular place where members meet and discuss all topics, whether related to gardening or not. We have forums for veggie gardening, ornamental, and a forum to show off your achievements. Just click HERE and all will be revealed. You can view without registering, but need to register in order to post.
Each month we hold a photo competition in our General Forum. See here for the winners.
Few people realise how many plants are poisonous and, in some cases, deadly. Visit our comprehensive, fully illustrated, section on this fascinating topic by looking HERE.
