I am a professional craftsperson by trade but it seems to go hand in hand with my love of gardening. I quit doing craft shows and launched my own website so that I could work from home and in the garden. In 2002 I created my own line of hummingbird feeders because I enjoy them so much I wanted other to have the same opportunity. I am a southern transplant from North Louisiana now living in western NY just 12 miles from Niagara Falls. In the fall of 2003 I discovered Winter Sowing. It is a wonderful concept and the best thing I can say about it, is that it does indeed work even here in the snowbelt! I had the most beautiful plants this year for the first time since coming to NY and even my husband was impressed (which is not easily done). It was really hard to pick my two favorite forums as most of the forums that I frequent a chock full of helpful information, fantastic people and even fun projects. Garden Web is one of the few places that I come to on a daily basis because there is always something new to be learned and great people to share it with.

If you want to learn all about wintersowing, I highly recommend the Winter Sowing Forum

If you want to learn more about growing plants and hanging feeders to attract hummingbirds then come join us on the Hummingbired Garden Forum where we also have our own seed exchange list and picture gallery.
