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.
A fine new work from the author of one of our most-used resource books, Golden Gate Gardening, this book continues Pam Peirce's love affair with growing things in the peculiar multitude of mini-bioregions that comprise northern California. Here, she talks about plants that do extremely well here, and on saving seeds, and on what's easy to propagate. "What the professional gardeners call the 'free stuff'."
I'm also enjoying the author's ongoing weblog, at http://goldengategarden.typepad.com/
