We continued the #growyourown series on #groundchat last week with the divine Brenda Haas, host/moderator/organizer of #gardenchat. Bren shared her experiences with growing peas!

A couple months ago I agreed to do a tweetup on #gardenchat. I had first wanted to do something on natural pest and disease control since most of Canada has banned pesticides for home use. But Brenda Haas, moderator of #gardenchat, felt it already been covered. I put my thinking cap on and came up with “Sustainable Garden Design.”
I am a great fan of Twitter, but with so much information and people, it’s easy to spend most of your time tweeting without really “talking” to anyone. The solution? Tweetups: an organized focused session on a particular gardening/landscaping topic. It’s the best filter for finding excellent garden-related information.
Last year I found out that plant breeders follow fashion to determine colours for their annuals. I was surprised. It’s not the gardening community that was setting the colour trends. So I wondered, how are other gardening trends set?
