5 Favorites: Instagram and TikTok Accounts to Follow for Gardening Advice

October 24, 2023

While progress in our gardens is very slow in comparison to our frenetic lives (a good thing and why many people garden), sometimes we need to problem solve without waiting—sometimes entire seasons—for nature to show us the answer. An Instagram or TikTok gardening account that dispenses practical pithy gardening tips can offer instant gratification. To help prevent mindless scrolling, though, we’ve curated our favorites that will both entertain and educate.

Instagram

@portageviewfarm

Portage View Farm’s account is just so fun. Yes, homesteaders Jordyn and Kay live on a farm in Washington, but many of the issues they face will be familiar to home gardeners as well—like what to do with powdery mildew and when to harvest onions.

Joe Lamp’l, the creator and host of Emmy-winning PBS series Growing a Greener World, has extensive knowledge of how the plant world works and how to garden with few (if at all) synthetic interventions. He looks at the garden as a whole, with soil health as the foundation to healthy plants. 

@floretflower

We are longtime fans of Erin Benzakein and her flower farm, Floret Farm, in Washington. On her Instagram account, you’ll get inspiration and growing advice in equal measures.

@epicgardening Replying to @Jessica Diaz6922 My air layering technique worked and now I have a PERFECT clone of a rare yellow long neck fig. You can do this with almost any “hardwood” ornamental or edible tree as long as you follow the steps in the original video #garden ♬ original sound – Epic Gardening

Kevin Espiritu started his gardening journey in 2013 and quickly became obsessed. His account features an extensive number of videos on everything from planting and pruning to saving seeds and cloning trees. And then there are the crow gifts. (It seems he has befriended some crows, who regularly air-drop presents like golf balls and pine cones to him.)

@judybaogarden How to grow a mango from seeds! 🥭 #mango #howtogrow #garden #urbangardening #urbanfarming #fyp #seeds ♬ original sound – JudyBaoGarden

Mama Judy has been gardening for more than a quarter of a century—and her lush Florida garden, filled with tropical plants (think passionfruit vines and mango trees) has benefited from her hard-won wisdom and experience. And you can benefit, too, via her TikTok account.
