Gardening Links

Here are some of my favourite gardening links to lots of useful information, including wildlife and organic gardening methods. Please note, clicking on any of these links opens a new window.
On this website, I don't go into great detail on the impacts of weed killers on bees and the environment.  However, this website has it covered.

Marc M Radell
An outstanding source of information - and as I write, this website is still in development! It is a US website, but there is lots of brilliant information that applies wherever you live in the world. Check out the presentations and information downloads. Don't leave the website without looking at "Garden Insects: The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful" - you'll learn some surprising and wonderful facts, and "Gardening for Planet Earth: 10 Ways That You Can Make a Difference". There is also lots of general information about organic gardening, sustainable vegetable gardening and so on. He also reminds the reader about an important point here and there: even organic gardening methods may not be wildlife friendly! At the end of the day, habitat is important - and insecticides are for killing insects whether they are organic or not. Take a look at Marc's brilliant website for expert advice. 

Garden Organic
A UK charity providing lots of advice and resources for organic gardening. One of the things I admire most about this charity is that it is also home to the Heritage Seed Library. This seed library performs a vital function, as it protects over 800 varieties of rare vegetable seeds from the threat of extinction. More gardening links to information and resources on this site.

How To Save Seeds
'How To Save Seeds' is a whole book published on the internet! It is written by Jack Rowe, and what a fantastic and generous man, to provide so much information so freely! There is literally loads of information on this site, even instructions for saving seeds from specific plants. Wonderful!
