Welcome to A Gardeners Forum

We would like to welcome you to A Gardeners Forum! Our forums where initially established to house The Garden Helper's forums (TGH was established in 1998) in 2007. With the sale of The Garden Helper in 2013, A Gardeners Forum is a completely separate entity which is owned and operated by the long-term site tech James.

It is our goal to be a great resource for discussion, identification, and gardening information!
