Group Description

Virtually Everything About Gardens.

This group is for anyone interested in the practice of garden photography. Please post your photography here for comments on plants, gardens, garden design, and anything garden related.

To learn more about MyGardenSchool and online gardening courses please come and visit us at : Please also 'like' us on our facebook page if you do! And we love chatting to other gardening enthusiasts on our gardening blog where you will often find us pondering the current jobs to do in the garden and the latest on garden design.

MyGardenSchool's philosphy is to encourage people to treat their outside space with the same respect as they treat their indoor space. We believe that we should think as deeply and carefully about the usage, style and design of our exteriors as we do our interiors.

We also believe that gardens are fun. And a close relative of art. Gardening doesn't deserve the crusty reputation it developed a few years ago. It's a well kept secret - gardening is cool!
