Top 10 Garden Blog Posts in 2022
There’s something to be said for gardening ideas, tips, and inspiration.
Whether the beautiful touches of my garden are in my social media posts or on the blog, the most popular posts for 2022 were about gardening, no matter what the season.
The next 2 garden recap posts are both about dahlias and are older posts that were republished in 2022.
It may be a little bit late (or a lot late for some areas) for storing dahlia tubers these coming months but if you haven’t overwintered our dahlias, this is some meaningful content for the coming year.
Are you new to dahlia plants?
I remember the first time I planted a couple of dahlia tubers from a neighbor and was hooked instantly! Dahlia blooms are one of the greatest things in my garden and the blooms usually last through October in my area, hardiness zone 8b.
The picture you see above was probably the best year for dahlias. Aren’t they just stunning?
Within the past couple of years, I’ve published a blog series about how to start a cut flower garden.
I went a step further last year by writing about individual varieties of annuals I grow in the greenhouse. 3 of those cut flowers are in the top 10 blog posts in 2022.
Growing cosmos by seed in the greenhouse was a favorite on the blog and I can see why. It’s one of my favorite annuals that I grow in the garden. And did I happen to mention that they’re very easy to grow as well?
Did you know that dividing your dahlia tubers every year has many benefits?
Here I shared my process for dividing tubers and the advantages of splitting these dahlia root clumps annually.
Trends are very popular on the blog. Especially when they have to do with the garden.
With the threat of climate change, drought-resistant plants are a trend that I’ll be working on this summer in the garden.
We saw the post about the cosmos, and now we see that learning about growing zinnias by seed is another popular post that did well on the blog in 2022.
If you want an easy way to add beauty and color to your garden and your home, growing zinnias is definitely the way to do it.
I love sharing my seed selection for the cut flower garden every January and apparently the Shiplap and Shells readers love reading about my choices.
When it comes to the entire gardening process, choosing seeds is my favorite part. I usually start sowing seeds like sweet peas and snapdragons at the end of January.
I always continue growing flowers that I had a great year with and are easy to grow, but I also add a couple of new things into the mix. It’s fun to try a different variety or two each growing season.
I get questions about the garden all the time so I decided to write a post with answers to some of the questions I’m asked.
I’d love to hear if you would like more “Q & A” posts to continue on the blog and how frequently.
Strawflowers are another great annual to grow in your cut flower garden and are one of my favorites.
They are such unique flowers and feel papery and dried.
Are you a fan of low-maintenance gardening?
I’ve shared some flowering plant options for you that I’ve found easy to grow.
Low-maintenance perennials are one of the greatest things you can grow if you’re a busy person with little time to garden.
And there you have it…the top blog posts fro 2022.
It was fun for me to review posts to see which ones were viewed the most throughout the year. I hope you take some time to look through the ones that interest you.
I’m always looking for new blog content and would love your feedback. Please share the home and garden topics you would like me to write about for 2023. Thank you as always for being here.
Until next time,
Happy New Year!
