    YourGardenShow.com features an expansive 6,000 vegetable database developed by Cornell University (778 varieties of tomatoes!) and a 5,900 ornamental database powered by Missouri Botanical Garden, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the U.S.A. Uniting the 25,000 square miles of America’s gardens and beyond, YourGardenShow.com encourages passionate gardeners to “show and tell.” Maintaining local roots in California, Iowa, Illinois, New York, Massachusetts, Virginia, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Italy, the YourGardenShow.com team includes “Groundskeeper” Mark Kane, the former Executive Garden Editor of Better Homes and Gardens.

    “Creating a resource and network of global ‘neighbors’ trading tips and spreading green thumb wisdom is a fantastic tool for the growing worldwide gardening community,” says Mark. “Gardeners visit over the virtual garden gate — with one click of a finger you can be transported from an Italian Grand Garden to a vertical window garden in downtown New York — everyone’s got something to share,” say husband and wife co-founders Tom Finerty (Emmy-Award winning producer) and Lisa Marini (Master Gardener). YourGardenShow.com was developed by Pivotal Labs (Twitter) and designed by Hot Studio (Ancestry) in San Francisco.
