The Right Plant for the Right Place

August 10, 2008

The Fine Gardening Plant Guide has to be the absolute best garden resource I’ve discovered on the world wide web lately. I spend hours researching all kinds of gardening and design stuff online and this plant guide is the best yet. When you get a chance to visit, check out all 13 browsing options to narrow down your search for the perfect plant. This guide covers it all. No more cross-referencing different resources to figure out the plant’s climate zone, if it thrives in sun or shade, is it deer resistant, or if it attracts hummingbirds. Whether you are testing your gardening skills, or you’re a skilled green-thumber, this guide is sure to help you find the right plant for the right place. Really, the only thing you have to know before your search is what hardiness zone you live in. >>Start Browsing The Plant Guide

What Is A Hardiness Zone You Ask?

The United States is split up into 11 different zones by degree Fahrenheit difference in the average minimum temperature. This means that all trees and perennials within a certain hardiness zone can grow in the zone’s lowest average temperature. Growing plants outside of your hardiness zone will take more effort and care to ensure the plant or tree survives winter temperatures. Many tender plants can then be brought inside and enjoyed as houseplants. >>How To Find Your Growing Zone

I just love resources that don’t make me think any more than I have to. Creating the garden of your dreams shouldn’t have to be chore, and resources like this plant guide help you save time researching and more time gettin’ dirty in the garden.

What garden resources do you find the most helpful?
