Great Gardens and Garden Plant Success Starts Here


Doug Green
I'm Doug Green, a semi-retired nurseryman who used to produce 1600 varieties of perennials and 6-800- varieties of annuals every spring in my nursery and garden center.

I stopped doing that to write and have written 8 paper books and a growing number of e-books. Not to mention my three websites.

My objective with both of my websites is to help you have a better garden using organic methods and to provide you with honest, accurate information that's based on what really works and not just what the Internet says.

Note there's a search bar on the bottom of most pages so you can find the answers you're looking for.

Note to new visitors. I'm in the middle of a massive rebuilding/moving content project so you're going to see a lot of changes over the next few months. My apologies for the mess. There's a lot of stray code running around on here and on my office floor. ;-) But I'm rounding them up as quickly as possible.

rose 'About Face

We named our old nursery after this Shaker hymn and in 1998 when I shut down the nursery to write full time, I kept the website.
