If you're looking for solid how-to gardening tips, organic gardening techniques along with practical plant reviews and product tests, you've hit the right website.

I'm Doug Green, a semi-retired nurseryman who used to grow 1600 varieties of perennials and 600-800 varieties of annuals and vegetables in my nursery before closing it down to write full time. I've been growing and passing along practical gardening information for over 35 years now and I'm happy to help you with organic gardening techniques that help make your garden a better place for you, your kids and pets.

You can sign up for site updates and for the gardening newsletter, watch gardening videos or browse and find the things that interest you.

Thanks for visiting and sharing your time with me - I hope I can help you be a better gardener.


p.s.  the site is being rebuilt and you may notice some differences in page navigation between pages as I add pictures and search capacity to every page.

Books Hard as it may be to believe, I have way too many gardening books for the average person. Luckily I admit to my addiction. :-)
Gardens I've visited many more good gardens than I have uploaded and reviewed here but again, that's on the to-do list
Shrubs These are backbone plants and you deserve nothing but the best. I look at a variety of shrubs I'm planting and review them for you.
Products I test all kinds of things in the garden - some I buy, some are sent to me for testing. Here are the results.
Perennials Too many perennials turn out to be duds. I ask readers to help me review good perennials too.
