The visiting resident horticulturist and the host provide practical advice useful to a country-wide audience. Plants are tagged on-screen with growing zones where they thrive. Even when filming at a hot, desert location information will be presented making it pertinent for those in cold climates - how to grow Cactus in containers, for example. Gardeners are always looking for new ideas and new plants - "Garden Smart" is unique in that it's a gardeners show and presents new information each week that lets gardeners know what other gardeners are growing and how. Frequently addressed topics include landscape design, household and garden pests and kids gardening.

Viewers are encouraged to contact the shows' experts and ask gardening questions via email and toll free phone lines, when a trend is noticed that topic is then addressed on the show.
