Laterlife Gardening Website Review


Mary Mary, quite contrary,

How does your garden grow?         

With silver bells and cockle shells,                    

And pretty maids all in a row....                     

If only gardening were as simple as that little nursery rhyme. But it isn`t, so we are searching out what are, in our opinion, some of the best internet gardening web sites for helping beginners get started, and the more proficient among you keep up with current trends, or just for something to read on a rainy day...


I have found three more interesting websites for you to look at this month: 

This really is a one stop gardening website for all your needs. It has the latest gardening news, shows to visit, articles, stories and information about the gardening personalities, clubs, weather reports, questions and answers, tips, screensavers, shop..  etc. etc. There is enough reading here for a whole wet summer! 

According to their website they are the UK's number one palm grower and nursery They sell palm trees - cold hardy and tropical - bamboos, tree ferns, hardy bananas, cycads, and other exotic plants. They are the UK's foremost palm nursery for indoor and hardy palms, for garden, home and conservatory. They currently list over 300 species. Many in a range of sizes from seedlings, to mature trees. Prices from 2.50 to 3000. They sell retail, mail order, trade and wholesale and welcome exports to Europe.  

The website owner Thomas Leo Ogren has written a book about allergy free gardening, which allergy sufferers may find helpful. In the modern world there seem to be many more people suffering from allergies and if we can do something to alleviate a little of the suffering and misery caused, then well and good    


I think the last four editions will have given you enough websites to bookmark and enjoy over the winter months. I will be back next spring with some more gardening related websites..
