Welcome to the Gardener’s Path Community!

Thank you for registering an account with Gardener’s Path.
We’re so glad you’ve joined us.

We’re dedicated to making Gardener’s Path an informative, resourceful and high-quality website for home gardeners and pros everywhere. So before you dive in, here’s a few things to help you get started.

Your First 2 Forum Posts

We’ve found that the most effective way to protect our members is to impose a temporary posting restriction for new members. Your first two posts will need to be approved by a moderator before you will be able to post freely without intervention.

Post Approvals

As a new member, your new posts will go into a queue, where we’ll review them. You need 2 approved posts in order to post freely from then on.

Quality Posts

Spammers try to use useless posts to get in quickly. Your first two approved posts will need to contain quality content, such as posting an intro.

Private Messaging

Spammers try to sign-up and then immediately send spam to our users. We put the kibosh on that until you’ve had 2 approved posts.
