About Learn Planting

Our goal is to provide practical, actionable, and informative advice to make it easy for people to make sound decisions around purchasing effective gardening products and learn how to best nourish their greenery (all plants - veggies, fruits, succulents, herbs you name it!)
There's a lot of bad information filled with biased opinions and rehashed advice. Our aim is to provide valuable, well-researched planting resources.
