This blog reviews the latest products, plants and innovations in gardening. It also provides a link for my many gardening friends who are members of the GardenMessenger and Seedmessenger Yahoo groups and their sub-groups that I moderate.

My Photo
Location: Australia

I am a semi-retired UK botanical garden curator and former international horticultural consultant, who has worked extensively in Europe, the Middle East, North America and Australia. I spend part of the year in Australia and part in Europe, mainly due to family and work commitments. I earn my living from writing and editing Internet copy, articles and books. I have written over fifty books on gardening and have been translated into twenty-four different languages. I am a former UK Garden Writer of the Year and a previous Quill & Trowel Award Winner from the Garden Writer’s Association of America. I am interested in developing gardening communities on the Internet and I manage the popular GardenMessenger Yahoo group, along with its various sub-groups like PondMessenger and SeedMessenger. I also edit International Water Gardener and its associated regional web-sites.

Propagating and Labelling

The Compact Rootrainer
The original Rootrainer was developed for commercial growers and for some years has been widely used in the nursery industry, especially by those who raise trees and shrubs from seed and cuttings. It is now available to the home gardener as the new Compact Rootrainer Tray. It contains twenty hinged, easy open "books" or cells, and is smaller than the original Rootrainer. An easy to handle, lightweight tray design rather than a traditional Rootrainer frame, the Compact uses less space and compost and is ideal for window ledges, hobby greenhouses and cold frames. Gardeners who are not familiar with the Rootrainer system should visit their web-site for more information click here.

New Method of Labelling

Brother GL-100

The Brother electronic GL-100 is a gadget for printing durable labels that are perfect for all gardening purposes. The labels are also ideal for labelling storage jars for anyone who makes own jams and preserves, as well as for other applications around the home. The GL-100’s laminated labels can withstand extreme temperatures and are totally resilient to humidity and rain.
