Previous Polls...No political commentary, please! But you can let the world know what you think about any and all things related to gardening with these DG exclusive features. Remember, sharing what YOU know will help others!
Tallulah_B, you'll find links to about half of these features in the Products and Sources tab: http://davesgarden.com/products/ The Watchdog, Bookworm and Go Gardening are great for finding new mail order vendors, local places to visit,and books worth reading. Plus, by reviewing the vendors, businesses and books you're familiar with, you're helping future readers know who's a good bet, and who's not.
You'll find PlantFiles and BugFiles under the Guides and Information tab: http://davesgarden.com/guides/ - again, sharing what you know about plants or insects will help others.
Tir_Na_Nog, if you have some local garden centers or nurseies you purchase from, you can add a review for them in Go Gardening ;o)
Others in family use my pc...today is my turn. I'll do "catch up"; I have too many plants in pots. Must get then all into greenhouse before first average frost date of November 15 IN ZONE 8, LAKE SAM RAYBURN, DEEP EAST TEXAS.
I've been propagating many leggy potted plants; winterizing young trees and shrubs, roses, candle tree, hibiscus, Confederate rose tree, Grancy Grey Beard trees, and about 20 others. Phew!
I'll update my Dave Garden activities right away.
Blessings for success and pleasure as you grow beautiful plants.
Sigh I put none (blushing in mortification) although I did put 2 notes in plantfiles about federally prohibited plants. Mainly I haven't done anything because I'm just not techie and I'm afraid of blowing something up. One of my winter projects is to learn how to do PFs and put all my stuff in. I think once I learn how to do PFs the others will be easier to learn (I hope).
dahlianut, don't worry you won't blow anything up! LOL, uploading pictures to Plant Files is really easy ... if I can do it anyone can do it! I am Totally Technically Challenged! ^_^ If you have questions, d-mail me and I will try to help.
I really appreciate that everything here is so accessible! I am like the least techie person in the universe (except for my M.I.L., who won't even do e.mail ). I can't believe I want to learn photoshop next year!
Roybird, Photoshop is a lifelong learning process. Just when you get almost where you know most of it, they come out with a new version! Love it though, I was self-taught almost 15 years ago...
I think to make a hyperlink you just copy and paste the whole address from the address window in the top of your browser, including the http, etc... looks like Melody's didn't catch the whole think in the link for some reason.
