The drawback of using a marketplace rather than individual company offers is that the marketplace itself will be taking a cut, so your commissions are slightly lower on average than they would be with a company directly.

You could set up a "Gardening Resources" page on your site and use it to promote affiliate products related to gardening, such as books or magazines about gardening, packets of seeds, flower bulbs, plant pots or just about anything else gardeners would be interested in. (Remember, though, keep your focus and avoid turning this page into a general flea market or you'll end up losing traffic.)
