PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
The beginning of this book is gardening basics - how to plant seeds, pruning, planting containers, etc. But the fun (and kind of silly) part of this book is the mix & match section which has about 250 different annuals and perennials. The pages are cut horizontally into quarters so you can flip each plant separately, with a beautiful picture on the right with zone, planting, and growth info on the left. I believe each quarter section represents a different height.
There are very specific cultivars of lots of different kinds of plants- if I ever picked a combination I fear I would never find the specific cultivars listed.
It is fun to sit and flip through in the winter...but I would never use it to actually pick out my garden combos.
