Welcome to the Yates Growing Community

This community blog is a place for gardeners to come together to share their successes, problems and aspirations while having fun growing. We’ll have different challenges to make life interesting along the way.

The recent Vegie Growing Challenge has come to an end, and we had a fabulous group of gardeners sharing all their gardening ups and downs throughout the spring.

The growing community is open to all gardeners to post anything from a photo of a beautiful flower you just had to share, an in depth blog post of a garden project you created or a place to put regular garden updates to avoid overwhelming your friends on social media. Or just browse and make friendly and encouraging comments on the posts already here.

From time to time there will be more competitions, Check the 'What’s going on' box to keep an eye out for the next one.

To be a part of the community just green button and you will be able to begin sharing straight away.
