Some hints for getting around this easy site:

1. When you click on FORUMS, ARTICLES AND BLOGS It takes you to all that ATP offers us.

2. When you click on the logo "All Things Plants" on the upper left hand it takes you to a personalized page of forums/threads you alone are watching. Also, at the bottom of a post, and the bottom of the entire page, you'll see the words All Things Plants. Those take you to your personalized page too.

3. If you reply to a thread (subject) you will automatically be "watching" that thread. That means that everytime someone replies to it, it will come up on your homepage for you to read. If you want to follow (watch) a thread without replying, go to the top of the thread and click on the "Watch" on the top left side.

4. On the right hand side at the top of where the ads are, you will see an icon that says +1. Please click on this for any page you visit. Click only once per page per day. You will know if you clicked on it already because it will tell you when you put your mouse over. Clicking gives points to the website and helps it move up in the Google ranking.

Hi, thanks for the tut. I'm a beginner and I'll be doing container gardening since I rent a townhouse. I'm located in Miami.

I'm in the north of Florida about 30 miles west of Tallahassee and 1 mile south of Georgia.

Thanks Jan, I'm a little smarter now, being new here it is a lot of help.

I would like someone to explain to me the invasive plant law for Brazilian Pepper plant. It is prohibited from being planted anywhere in Florida, but if you have a seed that is dropped and started that is ok. What good is the law? They should be taken out no matter where they are at.

flgirl, your right, and invasive is an invasive no matter how it got there. Just look what happened with the kudzu vines. At any rate I would not allow it to grow on your own property if you have to burn it out.
