A brand-new Ask & Share feature from HGTVGardens.com allows users to ask questions and get expert advice from top gardeners at the National Gardening Association (NGA) and from HGTV stars, including Chris Lambton of HGTV’s Going Yard.

Along with partner NGA, a national nonprofit leader in plant-based education, visitors to the site can post questions to the forum to start robust online conversations on the topic of their choice.

“The Ask & Share feature is an exciting development for HGTVGardens because visitors now have an extra layer of interaction with the online gardening community and access to professional gardeners all in one online destination,” said Jillian St. Charles, vice president, programing and strategy for HGTV.com. “We know our fans have a great time in their gardens and what better way to engage with them than to offer the unique expertise of HGTV’s on-air hosts, as well as the advice from top experts at NGA.”

In addition, the Ask & Share feature provides visitors with a more traditional discussion board experience. The forum, which includes topic discussions on garden basics, edible plants, landscapes and hardscapes, allows visitors to respond to specific posts, hyperlink to other content and get quick access to their favorite gardening discussions via a tab on the users' profile that highlights users' discussions and questions.
