Getting Gardening Information

A.         “YouTube is a video-sharing website, created by three former PayPal employees in Feb., 2005, and owned by Google since late 2006, on which users can upload, view and share videos.”  Wikipedia

             You can locate YouTube on the web at :


             If you have never done so, get on to the site and in the search box that appears, type in the subject that you want to explore.  For example:

1. “how to grow tomatoes in Australia”.  Upon activating this search you will see a collection of videos to view.


             Time alone will determine how long you will spend on YouTube.  You could spend days, viewing videos on a whole range of subjects … not necessarily related to gardening.

             However, since this website of ours is focused on gardening practices, you will have a host of related topics to investigate … found  within YouTube.
