WEBSITE WEDNESDAY! Gardenguides.com for inspiration!



Stumped about where to start with your garden? Want to spruce up your space with a new design or some new plants? Want to try something different? Gardenguides.com is the place to visit!

I stumbled upon this website which came through to my email from google alerts - and what a gem! Not only is it nicely organized and laid out, it has a plethora of ideas to get the creative juices flowing! The "plants" section alone has tons of resources for plants by type, as well as a "top 100 most popular plants" list that links to what seems to be endless resources for each plant on the list. In addition to this they have garden design ideas including links to landscape design resources, how to get started with dry gardens, wet gardens, wildlife gardens, and even how to design a garden by color, light or season. I have to say I'm particularly interested in the moonlight garden plans - who knew there were so many different varieties of flowers that bloom at night! They also have an extensive listing of resources and ideas for edible gardens - even how to make an edible flower salad!

So next time you're stumped or need some inspiration, or even just want some interesting reading accompanied by some lovely photography, check out gardenguides.com!
