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 current challenge is the Vegie Growing Challenge 2020. It’s open to all skill levels including newbies – you just need a passion for gardening and a willingness to share your journey. To take part just click on the green box “My Blogs” above.

Vegie Growing Challenge

The Vegie growing Challenge had its 11th year in 2020 and quickly became a tight knit community of keen gardeners supporting each other as they gardened together virtually in a challenging year. Keep an eye out for the start of a new Vegie Growing Challenge at the start of spring 2021.

What’s Going On

The Team at Yates would love to wish you a safe and Happy New Year and look forward to seeing more of your gardens in 2021. NB: We have had a few teething troubles on the community page with the change of the year, but we are onto it and sorting it out, so please continue posting and sharing what is going on in your gardens, we do see them and we will make sure everyone else can see them too!
