About wikigardening



I started this site because I love plants and gardening, yet I remember how intimidating it all was at first. There were the latin names and incomprehensible gardening terms to cope with and I couldn't find many accessible places to go and learn from. I vividly remember being laughed at for my eccentric pronunciation of cotoneaster!

The aim of this wiki is to demystifying and democratise gardening and thereby help more people get more out of it. It's an open and friendly place to engage and encourage all gardeners - from the starter to seasoned. A place where everyone can share their enthusiasm, knowledge and opinion.

I live in London and so everything on the site is very UK focussed. I also love perennials and haven't grown much fruit, so there are obvious gaps in the things written about so far. That is hopefully the joy of the wiki, anyone can join in and write about what and where they know.

If there is anything you want to write about and there isn't a section for it yet then please do email me: lucy@wikigardening.com and I will try to sort it out. Please also contact me if you have questions or comments.

This is a wiki and it needs people to live!
