Allow me to introduce you to another cool garden blog, Urban Gardens: “Unlimited Thinking for Limited Spaces.”

The site is the brainchild of Robin Plaskoff Horton, who collects delicious posts from all over the Internet about finding, creating, and experiencing stylish gardens. Her most recent discovery: Urban Garden Chocolate candy bars from John+Kira’s. The Orange + Garden Rosemary bar pictured above is made with fresh rosemary from urban gardens in Philadelphia and Washington, DC — and 5% of the sale price goes directly back to the gardens to support educational programs for inner-city youth.

Robin writes, “UrbanGardensWeb.com stems from my love affair with city life, design and nature. I want to bring those things together for urban dwellers and others with limited space. I will link you to the freshest innovative and eco-friendly designs, trends and ideas for the stylish urban garden. I will explore and showcase what’s out there in the urban garden universe.”

Take a look and you’ll see why the site has garnered a number of industry and design awards, including a Webby nomination, the award The New York Times calls “the Internet’s highest honor.”
