While researching my latest blog regarding online sources for container and raise bed gardening I came across this article by Kerry Michaels (About.com).  The author was asked whom does she follow on Twitter.  Her list and comments are below…

 

  • @Arcadia1 – A kind and gentle spirit with a fabulous design sense.  Her container gardens totally rock – she’s funny and sweet.
  • @C_Vanderlinden – Colleen is the Guide to organic gardening for About.com.  She is feisty, kind and knows oh so much about organic gardening, and can disseminate that knowledge with kindness and compassion.
  • @SeasonalWisdom – Theresa is another funny, kind and way smart garden writer.  Her tweets inform, enlighten and amuse.
  • @Oakleafgreen – Andy is a lovely presence on Twitter.  He always comes up with cool plants and is generous with humor and knowledge
