All about sponsoring:
Over 30 years ago we were lucky enough to find something we were
passionate about and loved to do. Along the way, we have
received continual support from family, friends and even strangers
that appreciate what we do. They have kept us going through
the lean times and we have continued to do our best to help
We love to know that we are helping others. In addition,
answering your questions, making recommendations and diagnosing
problems helps us to continually grow our passion and learn more
about our ever-changing field.
Through your help and sponsorship of pages on this site, we
avoid pop-ups, flashing ad panels, background noise and so on.
We pledge to keep our valuable content free of such ads and
also free of the influence advertisers can bring to bear.
For instance, we're looking for Sponsors right now:
So we can add illustrations to several articles here that have
great information but come from our pre-digital photography days.
We'd love to make them more helpful by updating them with photos.
Those issues and their topics:
Ficus trees, Hibiscus, lights and flowers
indoors, in Growing
Peace lily problems, planting bare root trees and focring spring
flowers, in Growing
Leaf drop on plumbago and other plants taken indoors for winter, in
Growing Concerns #501.
Will you Sponsor one of these?
For the amount of your choice. $5, $30, $100, every bit
The posting process takes about two hours for each of these 19
page issues and often we can't pay our bills if we take that much
time off our "real work" of gardening. We can take the time if a
reader emails to say "I'll Sponsor that topic" or "I'll Sponsor the
topic you choose." We don't specify a dollar amount for a page.
Send what you can, what you think the information is worth. We do
the work and trust that averages will out.
Until then, for these articles yet to be posted, those readers
who were on our mailing list before 2010 and stashed the pdf files
we sent each week can find them in their own back files. We also
issued them on CD, so if you bought Potting up Perennials
you have them.

I really needed help with pruning
as I'm a new gardener. Dee
I love the 'whys' of how things
happen in the garden.
It adds so much more to understanding gardening
than just being told to do something
without the reason.
Thanks for reminding me of my dad, who
took this same no-nonsense approach and smiled all the while.
This works! And it saves
so much time and heartbreak.
I know, I've been there!
