Any of you guys know of any good sites where i can learn about shrubs and trees and so forth. I would like to get into the installation of these but need to learn more like how big they get whats better for shade etc. any help is appreciated. =)
Im sure there are sites to be found, but I stick to my god (Michael Dirr) Guide to hardy trees and shrubs. Latin names, common names, flowering times of yr, height, width, etc. Cost is about $70 but well worth it. I also use this to show scape customers illustrations.
THAT IS CERTAINLY THE BOOK TO HAVE...HOWEVER IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO THE INTERNET...CHECK OUT THESE...SPRRY I HAVEN'T FIGURED OUT HOW TO MAKE A LINK YET,,,
1 GARDEN WEB.COM....SIMILAR FORUM SET-UP, THIS IS A LARGE SITE.
2 LANDSCAPE MARKETPLACE.COM....IS A SALES COMPANY SPECIALIZING IN SPECIMEN PLANTS..BUT THE PHOTOS ARE GOOD AND THEY DESCRIBE EVERYTHING THEY SHOW....BY THE WAY ON A SALES NOTE..THEY AREN'T EXACTLY CHEAP
OK its hard to explain here because even with the spaces I added to confuse the computer, the software makes the address a link. But the stuff I wrote in the brackets, exactly as written including the brackets, with the web address in between will create the link.
