You bet men garden , and I've been loving working my Z6 garden for about 11 years now -- .....only real men aren't afraid to get their hands dirty and play in compost!.....just kidding here.

I'm in Southern Illinois. Have any of you heard of any SinglesSites for people who are really into gardening?

Ditto, Laurie. I don't even have older friends who garden! Everyone is like, why bother? It's too much work! They are the ones that are over weight and don't ever want to do anything either, though.... I am in Michigan. Anyone out there?

Hi!
To anyone who is interested in a get together for single gardeners, I will host a weekend (come and go, stay if you like) on June 1-3 at my 1840's farmstead in mid northern Indiana. The cost? Bring something to plant and plant it. Bring a favorite dish to share and we're good to go!

Have you no garden clubs in your area? No Master Gardener classes? I have met some of the coolest people of all flavors through these avenues! And they all love gardening! We swap, have breakfast meets, tour each other's gardens, dinners in the rain, you name it! Many are single, but much too busy planning gardens to hang out in bars!

Gorgeous thirty-something with dirty (some even broken) nails would love to converse with any and all SGF (single gardening folks). I'm into "swinging" baskets, S&M (snapdragons and mimulus) and mixed containers. Let's play in the dirt...

Like Tally above says -- we're all nuts! Can I come in and represent Boston?

That's 2 of us near Boston - I will email you. Meanwhile, anyone else out there? I am SWF 45 no kids, not overweight. People say I remind them of Susan Sarandon or Kelly Lebrock. I am a happy person with no real problems. Can there be anybody out there for me who can say the same? I am fairly happy being alone, but would like to widen my circle of friends. Email me, anyone near Boston.

I have often wondered if anybody ever thought of meeting people thru gardening and now I found you all. I live in Georgia and would love for someone to have a garden get together! Any other single Georgians who feel the same? E-Mail me if so, would love to organize!! Oh yea, I forgot to say that I am single and not overweight either! Anne

Jane_in_Boston

SWF, Boston area. Also unable to grow nails due to plant addiction. Currently an indoor, apartment gal who lets her Windowboxes really hang out!

Friends mistake certain habits as a lack of modesty, when actually its supreme confidence that the windows are impossible to see into, because of the teeming overabundance of hanging plant matter!

Would love to meet someone with whom I could have outdoor adventures , of the perrennial kind! Looking to explore my Seedier side, too!

34 year old freelance professional, who has lots of enthusiasm, but a serious lack of available window space. 5'3", long brown hair, with a decent figure, and very strong constitution, just MADE for hauling compost, lifting & planting shrubbery or trees, and amateur fruit-farming.

"Baggage" includes a chip on my shoulder from when an old Ex used the term "jungle" to describe my apartment, and didn't use a joyous tone, tsk tsk. Other baggage includes a large collection of Begonia Babies, including some "bastards" whose lineage is unkown. They are loved, nonetheless. Also, Monster Spathiphyllum, Stubborn African Violets, lots of Philodendrons, and Calatheas.

I am a devoted and faithful human partner, but cannot maintain fidelity to only one plant species. I am readily lured by flambouyant flora, and easily enticed by enchanting epiphytes. I've had multiple flings with Succulents. And I would do it again, too!

OK, OK... I think we need to petition Spike to make a new forum... for singles who garden!

Whattaya say?

Has anyone heard of a singles organiation called Single Soilmates? I belonged back in the old days when they were still mailing out profiles of subscribers. It should be by e-mail now if they still exist. I keep looking on the Net to see i i can track down a quality singles site that deals in gardening but no luck so far. Daveg's idea seems agood one since so mamy intersting people like to use the Garden Web

This is a fun thread! I am single and I am very attracted to men who love flowers and gardening! To me it is a sign of vitality, life, and the kind of sensitivity that isn't "head in the clouds poetry, daydreams and promises" but "feet on the ground and beauty from toil and reality"! I'm a VERY hard worker and I like people who aren't afraid of that (all of US!) I'm 5'1"...Italian (I can COOK those tomatoes!)...fun...artistic...have a good job...if anyone in the Jersey area wants to get together even to "talk shop" and share catalogs...let me know! :) Single Jersey gals...I'm straight but we can commiserate! (I posted a photo of 40+ self on my "Wild Thang" thread looking for kindred spirits before I came upon this.)

I, too, am Single, Female(40ish), enjoy gardening and all garden-related subjects. I actually make my living in the horticulture field. This "Single Gardener Enthusiasts" idea is very interesting. Are there really any Single/Male/Hetero/Gardening types anywhere on this planet???!!! Well, if there is.... come on, lets talk soil conditions, perennials, herbicide, propagation, you name it!! Okay Ladies, post a response, what's your experience, do these Male Species Gardening types exist???

This has to be the oldest thread I have run across.
Yes there are single male gardeners.
I live at 54Â 50" North. Not exactly crowded around here.
I am divorced. Was born 1947. Rather set in my ways.
Not really looking and donÂt really expect to meet anybody via this thread.
I am still working, garden in the summer & ski in the winter.

It has been a long time since anyone posted to this thread so perhaps this is silly, but if not, I just wanted to say that I'm glad to see there are other single gardeners. Actually some of the master gardeners I know are, but they are all women!
There is a site for green singles so I think there should be one for single gardeners as well!

Love the idea of a fun and friendly site for gardeners - dating and new friends. I'm 66 - a passionate gardener who enjoys being outside every chance I can. Spring is really here in North Carolina. Like many of you, most of my friends don't garden, but it seems most people in this area support local farms and tailgate markets. Fresh food is best.

Ohb, I am glad you restarted this thread.[I can't come to Ohio because I have my own farm!] I am not far from NC (about 120 miles northeast of Asheville). I am a single gardener or farmer really, in my mid 60s. I plan on gardening the rest of my life and am hoping to find another single gardener to share this place. I don't need somebody with money. I do need somebody that I can feel secure around -- meaning they are not into drugs and liquor. I used to commute to NYC to work years ago, and I also lived in cities awhile -- I was always trying to find places to plant things. I even dug up the sidewalk curbs. Finally I got a place. For awhile, I had relatives to trade flowers with etc., but they're all dead and gone. Now, having a gardening friend would be the greatest thing.

I'm 51 YO Female divorced (many years ago) and newly (6 months) single after dating the same man for almost 3 years. I'm 5'4" not obese but not ideal weight either, and live in the TriCities area of TN. Not bad looking I'm told. :-) I love organic vegetable gardening including great interest in composting/Interbay mulch. Pretty quiet, not a party girl or bar fly. I like bluegrass and antigues and flea markets and the Colbert Report. I'm from Alabama (Tuscaloosa) originally and love Bama football (but few other sports but will go to baseball games for fun!). Have been known to enjoy catfishing and bass fishing on occassion but would never go on my own. Love fine crafts also especially pottery. Appreciative of old skills of homesteading but can't see myself totally off the grid.. I'm looking for a 40's-50's something single/D male, a real guy type (but not sexist and fully appreciative of women in all their talents) intelligent (regardless of education) and interested in the world. If polictics differ must be able to disagree without being disagreeable, enjoys some of the same things, thoughtful and courteous. How's that?
