Your Gardening Information Source Since 1996
The Most Comprehensive Gardening Information on the Web
Our Plant Encyclopedia can provide you with incredible amounts of information on any of the 32,000 plants it contains, which can be found using either the plant’s common household or scientific name. The Encyclopedia is the largest in the world! No, we’re not kidding. The Gardening Forum is available for you to discuss any aspect of gardening with myself and other users.
The available information is far too extensive to list here in its entirety. Please see the menu bar on the left side and explore any categories that pique your interest. We provide complete instructions for novices and in-depth information for those with more knowledge. Regardless of your experience level, you will find plenty of gardening tips to make it worth your while. If you are looking for something specific, try our search tool.
The domain itself, which is extensive (and expensive!), is maintained by small staff with an intense interest, love and respect for gardening. If you have found the resources on Backyardgardener.com useful, please feel free to donate via the link on the menu.
