A list of links

I had a good journal entry I was working on, but twice it was thwarted by the weird format of this site which is Squarespace. I am not a technologically savvy person. One press of the wrong button and everything is gone! Oh well. I was attempting to write about what to do and when, because I keep getting asked that. Most of my advice was rambling and vague, because how do you really explain without reinventing the wheel? Now my answer is, here are some good resources that I have personally used:

Johnny’s Selected Seeds - The catalog has good info on seed germination, spacing, time till harvest, and more.

Texas Gardener Magazine - A good start for beginners.

Soil Testing in Texas - Texas A&M AgriLife Extension soil testing information.

ASCFG - Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers. Excellent info for professionals! Get the book Specialty Cut Flowers, by Allan Armitage and Judy Laushman.

Growing for Market - Excellent articles written by professional growers.

Common Diseases of Ornamental Plants - From the LSU AgCenter. A handy little gem!


The only way to really learn is to do it yourself. You will fail many times in the process and that is ok.

Happy growing!
