Planting
« on: May 08, 2015, 10:23:54 AM »
I don't know  how many can  use this info but here it is.  While we were living in Houston  I discovered an online plant and garden site.  They give you info based on where you live.  They also have a friendly forum for exchanging ideas and info.
It is Dave's Garden. 
davesgarden.com
They will send out newsletters but you have to ask for them.  I have asked many questions of them.  As soon as I moved from Texas to Tennessee   and changed my address I was able to get  information appropriate to my area.  It is a great site.

Yeah, being able to get the right advice for the area you live in is critical. One of the reasons I love my local garden center. They KNOW stuff and will steer you in the right direction.

I LOVE that site! I used it a LOT when I worked at a garden center and needed answers to customer questions. I still use it now that I FINALLY have a REAL garden (always had to use containers because we lived in apartments).

Welcome, Kathy.....   In Houston  we had a  condo and  all my plants were in pots on the patio and I was able to glean lots of info from the folks at Dave's Garden.

Love this!  Even though we have lived in the same zone for a while, there are always questions and it is nice to not get "general" answers.  We got a lot of advice at a local nursery about our fruit trees and this area which will probably save us a lot of heartache.
