Where's my gardener mufos, and who should I meet? I'm a total newbie and starting to garden. And by starting to garden I mean both researching what to plant for my first ever kitchen herb containers in a couple weeks and also recently hired some professional advice on how to progressively turn my yard into a permaculture food forest in upcoming years. I'd love to see more posts from other n00bz and from experienced gardners who like helping us learn. Bonus if southeast US (7b/8a boundary).

@epilanthanomai my gardening account is @GwenfarsGarden. I talk about, amongst other things, forest gardening in an urban context, gardening with a chronic illness, and growing edibles and ornamentals generally.

It's worth following and tagging your gardening posts with @plants as they will then go to anyone following that group. And use hashtags including: #Gardening #Plants #Permaculture #ForestGardens #GrowYourOwn #UrbanGardening #Vegetables #Gardens #Herbs

Also very popular is #Florespondence, when you post pics from your garden or neighbourhood, gardens you visit etc. This includes not just flowers, but trees, foliage etc. And #Sporespondence for fungi.

@GwenfarsGarden @GwenfarsGarden Oh awesome, thank you! I imagine the chronic illness gardening content will be helpful for me: I'm recently diagnosed with MS, so I imagine my energy will decline over time.

@epilanthanomai I'm sorry for the MS diagnosis, that's tough. I have ME, so there is a lot of cross over of symptoms. Always happy to share any knowledge I have and I'm sure you'll have your own tips to share as you get into gardening.
