    I do. Thank God for digital cameras. If I ever get the time I'm going to make up a catalog of plants that I can show perspective installation customers. The Nursery I deal with welcomes me taking pictures 'cause they know they're going to sell more plants because of it.

    I do too. Then I put them through my computer scape program and the cust. sees the plant and the application. Works well!

    I take pictures of shrubs quite often with my digital camera. Most books io have found with pictures od shrubs dont have any weeping varieties or topiarys.
