As a garden designer I am constantly searching for inspiration, fresh ideas and successful planting combinations. I will share with you a couple of helpful websites: http://www.clivenichols.com/ and http://www.gapphotos.com/. Using the search feature on each site you can type in a plant (such as: Nepeta). Multiple photos of the plant will appear often with companion plants and in garden settings.

This thread is a good idea...

At some point I'll be adding an entire links directory to the site, in fact there will be two links directories, one for commercial / retail listings and one for informational sites.

Hopefully they'll grow to become a resourse for gardeners.

Admwrd & Dizzy, That's great! Some of us don't have the time to really surf and research so I for one am appreciative of your efforts. Keep up the great work. And thanks for sharing! I can't wait to have time to check some of these out.

Thanks for the web sites, I am on dial up and searching the web eats up alot of my time so these sites will cover most anything I need to know. Thanks for taking the time to search and post them.

Getting busy

I'm really good at researching, but I often don't have time to really read all I want to about a subject, so I bookmark the sites in a folder. Then when I do have time, I go back & read up. :rolleyes:
Having DSL really freed me on the computer to be able to find most anything I want. Could never go back to dial up now.:eek: LOL!
Hope you enjoy the sites. :)

And their companion site:
Isaac's Seed Samples (Where all seedpacks are even less than $1.00!)

You can contact them for structural soil solutions. Visit their website for additional information.Kudos!

I loved value seeds. It broke my heart when they closed.
I like Issac's seeds and seeds for thee... but watch the seed count when ordering.

If you want something to do by yourself, you might want to check out landscape solutions for you. They offer quite a lot of information from garden designs, planting tips and even some techniques to achieve a better looking setup.

It is hard to appreciate something that you see per piece and so you have to take inspirations from those who are already installed. Though you would want something new, just to be ahead of everyone else.
