by / 6 Comments / 116 View / August 14, 2009 is a Web site for women  run and written by  a list of “who’s who”  in journalism and media, including Liz Smith, Joni Evans, Mary Wells and Lesley Stahl.

Aimed at women over 40, (I barely qualified), wowOwow features articles of interest to the “well educated and sophisticated woman reader.”

News, culture, politics, entertainment, style, opinion and gardening!

They really have a winning formula.

You can imagine how excited I was  when I was asked to contribute some gardening advice on a special post for  wowOwow titled, “ Gardening Bloggers on Wow.”

“Eden MakerShirley Bovshow dishes gardening tips at wowOwow!

I was one of seven, “renowned gardening bloggers  who answered  wowOwow’s most digging questions.”

1. What’s your No. 1 gardening tip?

2. What is the biggest mistake gardeners make (that they don’t know they’re making)?

3. What are recession-friendly ways to enhance your home’s curb appeal?

4. What are your seasonal tips for summer, fall, winter and spring?

5. What is the best way to have a healthy “green” garden?

6. What are some fool-proof flora you can grow — even without a green thumb or time?

7. Does organic gardening have to be expensive?

Who were the other six gardening experts that were polled?

Some of my favorite gardening bloggers!

Susan Harris representing the Washington DC area , blogging at GardenRant and Sustainable Gardening and many other informative sites

Pam Penick, the popular and talented garden designer and blogger  from Texas who blogs at  Digging

Patricia Blais of from Birmingham, Alabama

Cynthia Thompson from the Pacific Northwest and blogger at Brambleberries in the Rain
