The Garden Watchdog Directory of Mail Order Gardening Companies
Gardening is no easy feat, especially for those who are just beginning to get into the hobby. "Where do I buy gardening supplies?" is perhaps one of the first question someone who wants to begin a garden would ask. Of course, a simple Google search can do the trick, but that does not guarantee the best gardening paraphernalia supplier. Fortunately, one can refer to The Garden Watchdog, which gathers together the information of almost 8,000 mail order gardening companies. What’s great about this directory is that it also shows the positive, negative, and neutral reviews of the gardening companies, as well as information on the kind of plants or gardening supplies each company specializes in.
