Athens, GA area Gardeners?

Ornery_Pony(7b)April 12, 2014

I'm interested to know if there are other Gardenweb folk here in the Athens, GA area. Perhaps we might drum up some interest in doing a plant swap or a garden tour or something.

Although I have been reading this forum off and on for years I am a new member, finally signed on. I uploaded a few photos from the garden today in the gallery located here: and I'll try adding the clickable link below.

Feedback welcome! I always have new things to learn and it's a great time to be working in the garden before it gets too hot.

Here is a link that might be useful: Garden Photos Today!

I think I have been chatting with you on another thread about landscaping your new home. Welcome to GA! We should meet up sometime - I have plants I can share.

I live in Athens. Have been working on my garden as time permits. Retiring this year and would love to get a group group together.

Beautiful garden area in your pictures

I'm in Athens, but I do mostly edible landscaping. 4 blueberries, some first year black/raspberries, a fig, and then all your traditional vegetables as well. I'm only just starting to get into flowers and plants. I do grow daffodils out the wazoo for the ladyfriend, as well as a few other plants, but nothing special.
