|Do you have any gardening companies that you'd like to recommend to others? We all have our favorite companies that we buy from time and again, and I'm pleased to announce a new feature that will let you reward your favorite companies by recommending them to others!|
Introducing Gardening Recommendations, currently in beta form only. You can access it here:
Sometime this coming week I will find a way to make room for it in the tab bar up top and then we'll be officially launched. But in the meantime, feel free to check it out and see what you think.
A few of the features:
1) Anybody can add a company to be recommended. Once the company is added you can post your review.
2) Your review can be a simple one or two sentence review, or it can be a full length post.
3) You can include photos in your review! This way you can show what the order looked like when you got it.
4) People can post replies to your review (just like the way people can post replies to your photos in the database, for example).
Check it out, and let me know what you think.

|I meant to also mention: this feature is only a very small beginning. Right now it only supports the recommending of companies, but I have created this in such a way that I can easily extend it to support recommending other things, like books and even other fellow trading partners! Adding those other features will be a phase 2 project.|

|Do you think you could add a feature that would be like the green thumb guy or something simple for those who have used the product or company but don't do well with words (long recommendations)|
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

They don't have to be long, at all. Check out my review of DripWorks:
Feel free to recommend a company by simply saying "I recommend them" or anything simple like that.

|I hope it is okay that I put a link in some of the comments, to threads pertaining to the nursery? |
Can you review them Dave and let me know if that works okay for what you are doing?
SMG Nursery is one of them.
Young's Garden Center is another.

|It is the site record I want to change|

|I put a Canadian one in there. They do ship to the USA...will it be searchable, eventually, by Country?|
Jul 20, 2012 6:21 PM CST
|I see now what you are talking about Sis. |
I don't see an option to change that information?

Yes, perfectly okay.

ahh, sorry. That functionality is not yet in. Early this week I'll make sure to get that in!
threegardeners said:will it be searchable, eventually, by Country?
Yes, of course! And fully international in scope.

Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cackle maniacally and people back away from you slowly.
