Our website has so much information being added and updated that I decided to post an update to keep the members informed.

I wrote a new FAQ that explains how to remove a plant from your personal plant lists (My Plants, My Wishlist, My Recommendations, My Troubled Plants, My Plant Cemetery) and you can see it here:

I've also added a number of articles:

You can see all of our latest articles and special offers at our ARTICLES hub here.


Proven Winners and Spring Meadow Nursery have agreed to start creating Monthly Plant Care Reminders for some of their most popular shrubs and they asked me to add a list of about 125 shrubs to our plant encyclopedia so they could get to work on them.

You can see the list of their plant care reminders on their Plant Care Providers page here or you can hover your mouse over "Plant Care Reminders" then click on the "Plant Care Providers" link and you'll see al lof the different people and organizations that have created Plant Care Reminders.
