Recently (being on several tree forums) I noticed how often arborists and gardeners list a link for advice that was a "Google" search.
Experts know a lot. On the other hand, there are sites with probably 80% of the care advice people need for care of a specific plant.
Want to know how to care for a windmill palm? Go to Google and use keywords:
Windmill, palm, care
Got a disease on your cherry? Go to google and enter:
Cherry, disease, control
Want a pruning explanation? Google!
Pruning, cut, diagram
If you really want a great tool for finding the words in a site, sometime go to googles toolbar link - see below. If you go, you can download and install the toolbar on Internet Explorer, and it has a highlight button. It will highlight your keywords in a site's text so you don't have to read everything to get to the spot.
