The Garden Web Ring

Welcome to the Garden Web Ring. What is a webring? What is the purpose of the Gardening Web Ring? It's purpose is to create a ring of gardening www sites - worldwide. A Webring is a way to group pages of similar content together. Every ring has a "next" button. If one pushes this button, it takes you to the next page on the ring. If you hit the "next" button enough times, you'll wind up back where you began. To see this in action, try navigating the Garden Web Ring links at the bottom of this page. Or to learn more about webrings in general, click on the Webring logo at the bottom.

The purpose of the ring is to bring together pages related to gardening. If you have such a page, be it information, photos, or garden club or association information, please join! Non-commercial sites only, however.
