The Purpose of this Blog

View of the garden in winter.
Welcome to Gardening in Syracuse. The ultimate goal of this blog is to provide some sort of online reference point/discussion space/information source for any and all who garden within the sometimes harsh, but always beautiful landscape of Syracuse/Central New York. There are many fascinating ecological and botanical attributes to this part of the country, and there is so much that a gardener here can work with despite the perceived relentless winter. Winter is just another season...for gardening!

Gardening has many facets, whether it be planning or planting. In my opinion, it is a year-round past time no matter where you live.

So please feel free to comment and offer insight on any topics that you read about here. Remember that I'd like for this blog to help facilitate community among gardeners here in Syracuse. Happy gardening!
