20170304A.pngYes, this is the 1000th post on the Laidback Gardener page. For almost 3 years now, I’ve been posting a daily blog about gardening. And guess what? I have no intention of stopping!

Check back in each day for a new blog about some aspect of home gardening. I’ll keep trying to keep you interested.

However I don’t want to rest on my laurels and not offer you anything horticultural to think about, so what do you think of the following as a thought for the day?

The secret to success in gardening is not to place plants where they’ll look best, but where they’ll grow best

There you go: laidback gardening in a nutshell!20170304a

Garden writer and blogger, author of 65 gardening books, lecturer and communicator, the Laidback Gardener, Larry Hodgson, passed away in October 2022. Known for his great generosity, his thoroughness and his sense of humor, he reached several generations of amateur and professional gardeners over his 40-year career. Thanks to his son, Mathieu Hodgson, and a team of contributors, laidbackgardener.blog will continue its mission of demystifying gardening and making it more accessible to all.

    Thank You, Larry – You may be a “laidback” gardener, but you are a very active and prolific writer! I have learned much after stumbling across your blog, being entertained at the same time. Congratulations to you on your success, and thanks again!

  4. Congrats, and I’m guessing every gardener needs to be reminded of that. 🙂
