Who We Are

Garden.help was set up by a team of gardening experts in response to the variable, often poor quality, advice available to the average gardener both online and also in retailers. They saw too many people being put off gardening, blaming themselves for a plant dying, when they were simply doing what they thought was the right thing.

Our Mission

We want to make fixing plant and gardening problems as quick, easy and painless as possible. We know that a lot gardeners don't have the time (or the inclination) to learn too much about the finer points of horticulture and just want the answer to a question. That's why we operate on a question and answer basis. We either answer your questions directly or work with you to diagnose the problem so we can fix it.

Our goal is to take you from problem to solution as quickly as possible.
