Hi Paul.

I've enjoyed your work for years. I'm an earth-loving, organic gardener who loves to laugh. Thus, your show clicked with me right away. For the last several years, my outdoor gardening has been very limited due to circumstances beyond my control. I've kept my gardening soul thriving through two means: My 50-plus houseplants and your show. I watch your show and dream of a time when I will be able to garden large-scale like you. You're a terrific inspiration and have given me many ideas for the future garden I have sowed in my mind.

I've thought for a long time you should develop a Web site/blog. Your casual, witty, irreverent style is perfect for the blogosphere. Irreverence is almost a prerequisite for a successful blog. As a creative guy, I think you'll love the creative freedom of this medium. Another great thing about the Internet is the depth it allows. You can provide the complete coverage of a topic in great detail, which you just can't do in a 30-minute show. You can give people all the pretty pictures they crave, but you can also provide lots and lots of text. The visitor can choose what to look at; you can please everyone.

Also, I think you'll find niche Web sites/blogs can be quite lucrative. I'm a freelance writer and I only work with online media. It's just a fantastic and fun way to make a living and meet people.

By the way, I had to chuckle when you mentioned Green Day in conjunction with weed pulling because they are my favorite band to pull weeds to ... something about the energy and vide of their songs that makes me want to pull weeds.

Have fun! Be sure to let us know if you ever come to the Nashville, TN area.

Ugh! I can't believe you're traveling to St. Louis & we can't come see you. I just got off the phone with the MO Botanical Garden & they said this isn't a public event. So why, Paul, travel all the way to MO (almost completely unannounced, BTW) just to do a media event then leave our fair city? Darn, it would have been really cool to see you in person. Please come back soon. And good luck with the tour!

Hi Paul,

I just found your Web site and am very glad to have done so. I've been collecting episodes of GBTY onto DVDs for several years.

I also spent my day off -- like most days off -- weeding and planting.

Last week I watched one of your shows where you were eating arugula flowers; mine has bolted in the last week or so, and I tried my first arugula flowers. Very tasty. The arugula itself is getting a little too harsh-tasting to enjoy in a salad, but it makes a fine pesto and grows back with gusto after it's hacked nearly to the ground.

Best regards, Ed.

Paul, you might check your site. All the emails I've sent you have bounced back. Hope this gets through....

Have a safe trip! I'm so glad to have found your site, I love your show!

Toni Evans Truetken

Sure wish we could have seen you while you were in St. Louis. Next time you are out this way with a little more time, let us know. Hope your trip was wonderful!

I am so glad to see you have a website now! I'm a big fan of your show on HGTV and love your wealth of knowledge and sense of humor. Gardening can be hard work, but you also have to be able to make it fun! I will be a regular reader of your blog!

Pretty cool, welcome to the "internets".
I look forward to reading your unique (and I mean that in the best way possible) view on all things gardening.

BTW, don't have cable but the inlaws have SAT so we try to catch you when we can.

thanks again

Hey Paul, my husband and I are big fans of your gardening show and have been for years. However I do have a question for you, can you please tell us where to purchase that 7-2-2 topdressing for lawns you had on the show. We can't find it anywhere where we live (Washington St) on the western side.
Thank You

Hi Paul: Have watched and enjoyed your show for years. Have a question hope you can answer. I tried a Horstmann's Silberlocke Korean fir this spring (had! to have it) knowing it probably should not have even been being sold here and that it might not make it. Well, it didn't....unrelenting heat and humidity got it. It did great during our long rainy season, but it was also cool. Knowing you are a fan of small conifers, could you suggest something as close to this fir in size and appearance that would survive Oklahoma summers? This one was in shade after about 4:30 p.m. Thanks so much and hope to hear from you. I'm in OKC, by the way.
