Hi! My name is Allen Watts from Anything Grows, a store for gardeners in Stratford, Ontario. On behalf of expertvillage.com, I am happy to talk to you today about new tips for new gardeners. What I would like to speak to you first about is current trends in gardening. Gardening has really taken off. It is no wonder because it is a wonderful past time for young and old. It is a great way to get your kids involved in family life, great way to unwind at the end of the day or weekends, as you are fit you can do this for a long time, so connecting with nature is a wonderful thing. Current trends in gardening because gardening is so popular, can include anything from color palates whether that is your color styles or color choices for how to want to decorate in your garden or it actually has to do with your planting plan. In terms of plants you might choose for colors but color has become much more popular as well as the actual styling of your garden. There is many more options for approaches for style and people are looking at whether it is architecturally or international. You can choose styles that maybe suit for more of your lifestyle to make your garden feel more like home.
