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.

The Unedited Head Gardener - my blog where I tell you what I really think.
|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|
|Tools I want only the best tools that work and last. Here's what I really think||Products I test all kinds of things in the garden - some I buy, some are sent to me for testing. Here are the results.|
|Annuals There are some wonderful plants on the market and I'm uploading my test plot results as fast as I can now.||Perennials Too many perennials turn out to be duds. I ask readers to help me review good perennials too.|
|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.||Vegetable Garden Plant Reviews from modern hybrid award winners to heirlooms, I'll tell you how they grow and ask you to share your comments|
