Webwatch review by Rebecca Brumley,

Aimed at the "less experienced gardener," this encyclopedia contains clearly written, highly accessible articles, long enough to be substantial but hardly intimidating. Find 400-plus Garden Guides, in 13 sections, by clicking Gardening Guides or the Index on the top half of the homepage. Keep in mind that the Garden Guides page, not the homepage, connects to most information.
The Bottom Line: This well-designed layperson's guide provides a wide range of basic gardening advice. For more specialized information, go to the university sites. Vines and flowers and plants

Review by: Carla Joy, September 12, 2000
The Garden Helper "is a free encyclopedia of gardening help and information" with "hundreds of gardening and landscape guides." For some reason, the front page also has links to music, screen savers, animation and graphics, Merry Christmas pages. But the Garden Helper is the part of the site that I enjoyed the most. There's a wonderful Garden Calendar, which I found very useful because I always wonder if I'm doing the right thing at the right time with mygarden. The entire year is covered, so you canplan ahead for upcoming months. Bookmark the Calendar page or put it in your reminders and you'll never wonder about your gardening tasks again.

Some of the information is only relevant to gardens in America, but a lot of the topics are appropriate for UK garden enthusiasts too.
