I have been on many, many gardening websites and I must say, your website is so informative, so specific. I have learned more in half hour on yours than hours on others. I love it!
Great site. At last I've found what I need all in one site. Good job and keep it coming. This information and pics are tremendous.
This site is awesome! We will be moving from Pennsylvania to Cape Coral this summer, so landscaping and gardening will be all new. I will check back often. Keep up the good work!
We are landscaping our entire back yard and I stumbled upon your website...I love it!...This is my new go-to source.
Thank you for this web site!!! I was an avid gardener up north and moving here in South West Florida was a dream. Until I started to garden! It is very disheartening when trying to figure out how to garden here but your website really helped me. Thank you so much, can't live without flowers!! Looking forward to your new additions.
Just wanted to thank you for an AWESOME website.
