Our website has so much information being added and updated that I decided to post an update to keep the members informed.

Membership is Free: We invite you toJoin Now it's Free!

We've had a number of requests from members to add information about the plants they're growing so they can add them to their plant lists, add photos, get plant care reminders and much more. I'd like to put a spotlight on one user who's using the features on the Mulch - cgm707! I was lucky enough to visit his fantastic garden in San Diego and take a little tour.

I invite you to be like cgm707 - he's cataloging all his cool plants on the Mulch and if we're missing a plant name, he simply asks for it in our Missing Plant Names Forum and we add it for him! I suggest you visit his profile page and click on his "Plant Photos" and take a look at all his fantastic photos or click on his "My Plants" tab and see all the interesting plants he's growing!

TUTORIAL: Create a list of the plants in your garden on the Mulch -Tutorial: Creating Your Personal Plant List - How do I add plants to,"My Plants", "My Wishlist" & "My Recommendations".

I added the following plants to our Plant Encyclopedia for cgm707 and a few other members creating plant lists - do you have any plants you'd like me to add for you? Click each link to learn more, add to your list, upload a photo or much more!
