Em asks: Can anyone recommend a good source of information for a beginning gardener?
I want to start planning now for a permaculture landscape design for my yard next spring. From what I’ve read about permaculture, it sounds like a great concept, but I’m overwhelmed by ph levels, companion planting, planting seeds in hills, blah, blah, blah! I need to do this as frugally as possible and want to do some container gardening to avoid weeds. I want to plant the front and back yards and have it be both attractive and productive. Any advice? Thank you!

I have found that the local “Lowes” or Home Depot have a great variety of gardening/plant books for any area. Since every climate is different, most are tailored to your specific region. My fav is the Neil Sperry Gardening book. It gives landscape, grass, shrubs, flowers, herbs and trees along with a section on bugs and disease and a leaf chart for finding out what tree you have. It’s a great book, but unless you live in Texas, I don’t know if you will find it.
