Male Garden Bloggers

Over on my personal garden blog I used to keep a collection of links to other garden blogs hosted by men. It has been a long time since I've collected links and many new blogs have come onto my radar since then. This is by no means a comprehensive list of male garden bloggers. Some I read often, some I read when I stumble across them and some were suggested by other gardeners. I'll try to update this list as I remember old ones or as I'm introduced to new ones. In no particular order here are a few garden blogs hosted by men.

Dirt on the Keys-G
Back 40 Feet-G
Soiled Hands-C&A
NYC Garden-C&A
Art of Gardening
-G
All Andrew's Plants-PN


Garden Amateur-G
Duke City Digger-G
James Missier-H
Plant Zone-H
Pectrocosmea-H
I'm a Garden-F&V
Plant Quest-PN
The Expat Garden(er)-PN
Garden Austin-G
Lazy Shade Gardener-PN


If you don't get an idea on what the blog is about by the name this is what the letters mean:
H=houseplants G=general (different in every zone) gardening F&V=fruits and veggies E=essays PN=plant nerds C&A=community gardens & activism N=nature

* It is not my garden blog just the name of that particular blog.
** Is also listed under Portuguese Garden Bloggers.



Note: When I started this list male garden bloggers weren't as common and I wanted to highlight other males doing this. As such, I'm sticking with my decision that only blogs written exclusively by men will be included. I'll make a separate list for co-hosted or team blogs for the guys who I don't include here because they are part of a team blog or co-host with a significant other. 6-13-11

  1. I like to think I also qualify as a Plant Nerd, especially with regard to plants native to Northeastern North America.

  2. Xris, I'll change yours if you'd like me to. I know my labeling system is teh sucks but it is the best I could do. I figured some kind of labeling based on "type" of garden blog would help people pick and choose a garden blog or two to check out if they weren't inclined to look at every blog on the list.

  8. This is fun, MBT. I actually read quite a few male garden bloggers and writers, probably because all my best friends are men (including my husband, of course), ranging from a nursery operator I went to Nfld with planthunting to my 93 year old gardening mentor.

    I was going to add Jim@ artofgardening but I see he did. I also adore James Alexander-Sinclair (http://web.me.com/blackpittsgarden/Site_2/Blog/Blog.html) who is a funny, funny man as well as knowledgeable.
    Graham Rice is the Transatlantic Plantsman (http://transatlanticplantsman.typepad.com/transatlantic_plantsman/)
    Doug Green is a master garden-blogger and a generous soul with other gardening writers (and that includes bloggers) http://blog.douggreensgarden.com/

  13. Tons of great bloggers out there, male and female. :)

    I didn't realize how many garden dudes I followed until I checked my list. There are surely more, but for years, I've enjoyed the divergent topics and tones of these male garden bloggers from around the world:

    ATW from Urban Self-Sufficientist, in Georgia

    Andrew of All Andrew's Plants, in Toronto
    http://allandrewsplants.wordpress.com/

    http://plant-zone.blogspot.com/

    Tim of A Passion for Petrocosmea, in Pittsburgh
    http://petrocosmea.blogspot.com/

    And, y'know, of course me, now The Expat Garden(er), http://www.expatgarden-er.com. It's hard starting a new blog, but it'll sure be a fun adventure!
