You're My Favourite Way of Wasting Time

Everything has a website from Supermarkets to Sunday league football teams.

As a result there are a lot of gardening websites out there some good, some ghastly.

This Award is for the Most Entertaining Gardening Website.

We are not looking for anything particularly practical (that would be far too serious) or useful.

The successful nomination will be a good place to waste a few minutes. It can be a blog, a commercial site, a designer, a nursery - anything provided is has a a very slight horticultural bent.

Garden Rant. Lots of variety, lots of links, some ranting, some nonsense.

This is a really difficult category as there's loads of blogs I love. My shortlist's taken from those gardening blogs I go to immediately I see there's a new post in my Google Reader.

It has to be:

Thought provoking and informative pieces with an award winning shed to boot

Kate Smudges is very good - both for her blog and the responses she gets from her readers

Gardeners World - variety in both subject and style. However, there is no RSS Feed - which is a bit silly.http://www.gardenersworld.com/

Veg Plotting is the first blog I check out, followed by Shed Blog and Horticultural but VP covers a great range of interest for the environmentally-aware allotmenteer. After that there are a couple of solid allotmenting blogs that deserve mention - Growing our Own, My Darlington Allotment, Nome Grown, Our Patch of Earth and allotment-wannabe's Veg Monkey and the Mrs (no relation?).

I would go for The Plot Thickens in this category.

I would like to nominate The Garden Monkey (if that is permissible under the rules and constitution of these awards).
Always entertaining.

Shedworking ranges the world but is cosy too for non-shedworkers like me.
