Gardening is not brain surgery, or rocket science - and if I have learned one thing, it is that gardening should never be taken seriously. So have fun. There are no rules.
You may search all plants, or use the filter to search for annuals, perennials or those grown in sun, shade or for foliage or flowers. Scroll through any plant for useful information, swipe through hundreds of photos. Add plants to your list of favorites, and email some of these to your friends or spouse so they will buy you the plant you actually are lusting for.
For even more excitement, I have included videos where not only do I make a fool of myself, but may even teach you a few hints. Have fun!
