Real Gardeners

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.

Our Forums

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.

A garden to die for

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.

It could save your life!

Wildlife Friends

Some wildlife friends we all recognise, but others we aren't so sure of, so look HERE for a comprehensive list of them.

Wildlife Foes

We all seem to have plenty of these in our garden, but recognising them and knowing how to get rid of them can be quite a problem.  Look HERE and you may be more aware of what you are dealing with.
