For these gardening entries in my blog, I’m mainly looking for material that is of use to blind and visually impaired gardeners, and examples of blind gardeners in action. Sadly, there does not seem to be a lot of writing going on about these subjects.
There is plenty of good material about gardening in general, and there is an increasing number of stories about sensory gardens being built FOR blind people, but these are not really the topics for this column.
If you write about being a blind gardener, or about blind gardeners more widely, and I’ve missed your material, please let me know where I can find it.
Meanwhile, please also refer to my
