    Wanted your favorite links

    Hi All,
    Lost all my info on my hard drive and was wondering if you all would send in a few of your favorite links, so I can start another bookmarks file. Thanks!
    Happy Growing,
    Vicki in West. Mich.

    Vicki,

    That's a loaded gun, asking for our favorite links! LOL! Let's see what I can do for you!

    Here is just one that will keep you out of trouble for a while. I know most of this stuff does not apply to where you live, but it's fun to read anyway.

    Norman Winter is a very well known gardening person here in the south. He has authored three books on gardening, does an article for Southern Gardening, does TV and radio programs.

    Today he spoke at our local Master Gardeners group and had a book signing at the same time. Quite an interesting day.

    The following link is to Southern Gardening and has as one of it's pages, an archive of his articles.

    There are other links that I visit often and can send them along for anyone who is interested. Most of them have to do with plant propagation.

    Hi Vicki,

    So sorry to hear about your 'puter. That would just do me in to lose all that info. You've made me realize I have to back up my bookmarks! I'm going to try and keep this as short as I can!

    Do you want any on garden design, meaning of Latin terms, peonies, germination database, propagation, native plants, lilac, camellia, rhododendrun, vibirnum, hydrangea, wisteria, annual vines, honeysuckle, fuchsia, begonias, daylilies, moss, houseplants, cactus, pruning, planting/transplanting, diseases, insects/pests, lawn renovation and care, veggie gardening, weed id, hummingbird gardening, butterfly gardening, frogs/toads, turtles?

    There is probably alot more here then you need or want, but it should make for interesting reading through the winter.

    I like the cooperative extension sites such as www.aces.edu for my area. The North and South Carolina sites are also quite helpful.

    The biggest tip that I can give is to do a google search for 'plant name zone propagation'. Once you find the botanical name, substitute it for the common one. Often you will get more quality information using the botanical names because common names are used for more than one type plant.

    Thanks, Newt! What a wonderful and organized list!!!

    Tom, I breezed through several articles. That is definitely a keeper!

    Got to take a nap before I hit the alleys of Baltimore. I'll try and finish this in the next couple of days as I'll be out all night for the next couple of nights. Probably won't get much sleep tomorrow as I've got another foster mother coming to get a new mommy dog and her pups and I'm not sure what time she'll be here.

    This list of favorites has a habit of changing as time goes by, but some of the current ones are listed below. Look them over, keep what you like. Some of them may be duplicated from above, gardeners have a habit of looking for the same kind of things.

    Actually you did me a great favor. I checked them all as I went and ended up cleaning out some that no longer available, or were not very interesting.

    William,
    Thanks for that link, gardenweb has been a favorite for about 2 yrs. now, LOL! Since it's getting a little cold here, I now check out the coversations and other forums. Plant trading will be done till spring. Counting the days already and we haven't had our first snowfall yet! I have gotten some great trades from there. What is your user name? I also get the magazines from greenbeam, they're very informative. Thanks!
    Happy Growing,
    Vicki in West. Mich.
