Horticultural Links

Acer palmatum 'Trompenburg' in spring!

There are some really great places to visit on the Net, and we've collected a few ourselves. These are not obligatory links, but rather places that offer knowledge, excitement, entertainment and thought-provoking times. Enjoy.

Stop by John Shelley's Garden Center & Nursery website for some of the most eye-popping marketing, water gardens, trough gardens, alpine perennials, hardy cactus and a weekly Journal that tells you bluntly what he thinks. He's been a customer of ours for years.

Stop by the Triple Oaks Garden Center website for some real nice plants in the Philadelphia, South Jersey area.
