Woodbine, MD (PRWEB) April 19, 2006
Joe Lamp’l, better known to his audiences as “joe gardener”, has teamed up with Green Industry Yellow Pages (GIYP) to launch an online directory of “Smart Resources” that makes gathering information and finding garden products a cinch.
The online directory offers home garden enthusiasts an easier way to search for how-to information as well as their favorite garden products, plants and services. Once gardeners find all of the information they need, they can then search the site for businesses that offer the supplies and services necessary to bring their gardening plans to fruition.
“I’m thrilled to provide my fellow gardeners with such a comprehensive database of gardening information,” says Lamp’l. “The new directory will no doubt make it easier for gardeners around the country to locate the plants and products I have mentioned either in my writing or on the air through television and radio.”
The directory combines joe gardener’s extensive educational resources with the advanced Internet search technology powered by interactive media publisher GIYP.
“The result,” says Steve Cissel, CEO and founder of GIYP, “is an inclusive website packed with pragmatic information that is both interesting and useful.”
On the site, users can browse through listings either by category or plant type. Garden fans can then enter their state or zip code information to find a retailer near them that offers the selected products or services.
Lamp’l is known by many gardening enthusiasts as the TV host of DIY Network’s Fresh from the Garden, new host of PBS’s GardenSMART and as the voice The joe gardener Radio Show, which can be heard in Atlanta and streamed live on the Internet through joegardener.com. A passionate gardener since childhood, Lamp’l is a Master Gardener and Certified Landscape Professional with a lifetime of experience.
