Affiliate Disclosure And Advertising Policy

Specific product or business recommendations and my advertising policy

In this site, I recommend specific products and companies that I have found to be especially useful or helpful.

Depending on the agreement with the particular company, if you click on a link to purchase from a recommended company, I may receive a small commission.

These commissions help pay for the costs of running this website and the hours I have already put in to find information for you. You do not pay more for the items you buy this way (and you often pay less).

Most of these companies are ones which I personally use for my own garden! The main exceptions are companies which don't ship to the US -- in this case, I only recommend a company if friends living in those countries whose judgement I trust can investigate and vet them. I don't recommend any company that I do not feel enthusiastic about.

You win by saving time and having easy access to product and business recommendations, and I win by receiving your support and encouragement to continue doing what I do.

I’d also love to hear any feedback based on your experiences with the products and vendors that I recommend, whether good or bad.

I also do accept advertising from other companies on a case by case basis, if I feel the company and products might interest you. However, I may or may not have purchased from the company myself -- this is simply paid advertising. I indicate this relationship by using the words "this page (or site) is sponsored by" before the ad.

Paid advertising is one way I pay the costs of running this site. If you would like to sponsor a specific page (or this site) by donating to have ads removed on it, please visit my donation page and let me know which page (s) you'd like to sponsor.

Google Ads

I also use Google Ads, which are more general ads based on the topics in my site, or ads Google feels you might like, and are not selected by me.

Google forbids me to tell you to click on any Google Ad -- please only do so if you feel the information or product is relevant to you.

Also, please see my privacy policy for further information about Google Ads and how they track you online.

Please be aware that Google has the authority to decide which ads are placed in their ad blocks, so there may be instances where the same ad appears on more than one page. I have no control over this whatsoever.

If an offensive or inappropriate ad ever appears on a Google Ads block please contact me right away so I can ban that site from advertising here.

Project Wonderful ads

At the bottom of many pages is an ad block from Project Wonderful, an independent advertising agency which collects ads from a variety of businesses and blogs which pay to advertise here. Which ad you see depends on the country you live in.

While Project Wonderful and I try to monitor the content of these ads, if you see an ad or linked site which is offensive or not family-friendly please contact me so I can prevent that ad from being shown here.

Other ads on this site

Depending on the page, you may see ads from Infolinks, Chitika, Viglink, and/or The ad topics are supposed to be based on the page you're reading, in a similar fashion as Google ads are. I'm currently testing their use on this site -- if you have any comments or questions about these please let me know.
