The Spirit of Gardening on the Net

Garden Digest Directory

This Net guide presents a variety of websites with quotes, quips, poetry, proverbs, sayings, humor, essays, commentary, ideas, reflections, dictionaries, glossaries, and related written materials on gardening, horticulture, landscapes and natural history.
It also tries to locate collections of photographs of plants. It points to many mass media gardening topics.
It includes a very good selection of gardening magazines. 

There are thousands of websites and scores of databases on the Net that provide information and ideas about gardens
and gardening, small farming, plants, soils, animals in the garden, weather zones, trees, shrubs, flowers, landscape
design, garden art, organic gardening, arts and crafts, parks, ecophilosophy, conservation, forests, ecology, and
many related subjects; and this Net guide includes a few of the key websites on these topics.

Proverbs, Epigrams, Comments, Quips, Cliches


The Spirit of Gardening website has provided quotations, poems, sayings,
epigrams, and quips for gardeners, farmers, and Lovers of the Green Way
since January 1, 1999.  It is the largest website of its kind, and it has been
available free on the World Wide Web the longest.  The website has served
up over 4 million webpages to readers around the world - without banners,
ads, or commercial messages.  Gardeners, readers, writers, and webmasters
have used these quotes and ideas about gardening for inspiration, reflection,
and pleasure.  Numerous websites have used many of these quotes in new
and creative ways to encourage others to follow the Green Way.  Finally,
I have tried to make my own contributions to the literature in my
Pulling Onions and Cuttings.
