Gardening Questions and Organic Garden Information
If you want to ask gardening questions or you're looking for solid how-to organic gardening tips along with practical plant reviews and product tests, you've hit the right website.
I'm Doug Green, a semi-retired nurseryman and award winning author 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.
