Blogs? Bloggers? Suggestions?

I have a small (4 greenhouses, one acre perennials/shrubs planted) business in northern Vermont. I'm always interested in reading about the performance of various plants. I scour the trial gardens, but wondered if any of you are bloggers.

I have a blog and I TRY to keep it going, but Man, is it ever difficult to think about posting when there's so much to do.

I'd appreciate suggestions for blogs to check out. Mine is more for the home gardener, and since I don't do mail orders, it's not really for advertising.

Here's mine - hope it is of interest to some of you.

Hey Amanda - didn't know you you had ever looked at our trials online. The trial manager does a blog :-)

RE: Blogs? Bloggers? Suggestions?

Hi Jenny! I just read every blog at Raker's - thanks. The trials are phenomenal, but SO much information to wade through. Is there any "best performance for the year" section, or something along those lines? I like the blogs on "top picks" - that kind of thing?

Hope you are well - Amanda

RE: Blogs? Bloggers? Suggestions?

Hey Amanda - I don't think we did a compilation of "best" items. About all you can do is look at the "average performance score" for each item. You should make a road trip this summer! Go to Columbus for OFA, then drive up and see us :-)
