Garden and Gardening Related Hashtags

As a garden blogger and a big fan of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram for work, I often get asked by colleagues and other gardeners involved in the media, about hashtags and which ones I would recommend using.

The first thing to say to anyone not familiar with them is that a hashtag has nothing to do with gardening. What then is a hashtag?

Useful 'Garden' Related Hashtags

To help you get started I have put together a list of the hashtags I often use. To be honest, to varying degrees of success. However, the purpose of a hashtag is to categorise your content (e.g. blog, picture) and that means you may not always get immediate results.

#garden #gardening #gardens #gardentips #gardendesign #gardenchat #grow #growing #greenfingers #homegrown #veggie #vegetables #fruit #plants #planting #veg #plant #flowers #flower #herbs #gardenornaments #sculpture #outdoor #nature #lawn #furniture #love #heart #spring #spring2014 #springtime #summer #autumn #winter #nature

What is a Hashtag?

Hashtags are any combination of characters led by a hash symbol, for example #garden.

Why use Hashtags?

Hashtags are a good way to classify a picture or text on social media allowing them to be found and/or shared easier. Hashtags can be used when posting pictures to indicate what the picture is or what you wish it to represent. Within a Twitter message or Facebook post they can indicate how you feel, what your doing or something that is happening. The more a hashtag is used the more it will 'Trend' and become important. For example see my blog on UK Storm 2014 Hastags.

Where Can I Use a Hashtag?

Here is a list of some of the social websites on which you can use hashtags:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Google+
  • Instagram
  • YouTube
  • Flickr
  • Tumblr

There are plenty more but I have just listed the ones I use.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts and the hashtags you use.
