Why Did My Plant Die?
Not yours, too! Well, let's start off with this priceless nugget of wisdom from the late, great American horticulturist J.C. Ralston: "You're not stretching yourself as a gardener if you're not killing plants!"
So now that we've taken care of your guilt, let's move on to your questions. Over the past few years, we've amassed quite a lot of gardening advice here at Talking Plants, and invite you to check our Talking Plants Archive to see if your question has been already addressed. We regret that for the time being, we are not taking any new questions. However, we're fairly confident that a visit to our Talking Plants Botanic Gardens and Arboretums Map of the United States will put you within easy reach of the smartest plant people in your own backyard. Support your local botanic garden or arboretum!
