LAGcovers

Louisiana Gardener magazine spent 20 years providing the most localized gardening information available. It did so by utilizing the best garden and landscape professionals around Louisiana and the South. The writers who gave their advice and opinions live and garden where you live and garden.

Unfortunately, the magazine is no more. But we had a thought. We have 20 years of gardening information just sitting here. Why not collect it all in one location online so everyone can access and enjoy it?

So we've created this simple website to serve as that collection. It's going to take a while, but we plan to keep adding articles from the archives until it's all here. So by all means browse, read, share, and enjoy.

Happy Gardening!
