Readers gardens, plants, stories and tips

Mealianthus major
I thought it would be a good idea for readers to be able to share stories, tips, information and, perhaps best of all, pictures of their plants and gardens.

So here is how you do it:

First add your name where indicated

Then, use the Post Title box to give your submission a title. e.g. “My Favourite Plants”.

In the Post content box type in your story, tips, information etc. Use normal punctuation including paragraphs. Try to include as much information as you can, as we can’t publish text only submissions that are very short.

You can upload up to 6 images, click on the browse button and navigate to the image file on your computer. Image file sizes need to be less that 200kb. If you need to reduce the size of your files, you could use this tool. To add another image click the “add another image” link.

Make sure you’ve read and agreed to the submission guidelines and then press submit. We’ll review your submission and publish it as soon as possible.

Please complete the required fields.
Please select your image(s) to upload.

I look forward to seeing your plant and garden pics and reading your gardening tips and stories.
