1. We teach people how to get started gardening and to improve their plant growing skills.

2. With over a million members, we are the largest social media website dedicated exclusively to gardening.

3. We maintain online tools that help gardeners connect, teach, share, and trade with each other.

4. We help gardeners research information through our continuous development of the world's largest database of plants.

5. We help gardening companies reach the public with their products, services and messages.

6. We provide gardening market research for the lawn, garden, and nursery industries.
