Elisabeth C. Miller Hort. Library

I continue to be amazed with the number of FREE gardening resources available to the public. Just this past weekend I found out about the Elisabeth C. Miller Horticulture Library in Seattle, the Garden Answers Knowledgebase AND the Plant Answer Line — all FREE to the public.

Aside from having to actually visit the library to borrow books, the other two resources are available online for everyone. Simply visit the library’s Web site and select your desired link:

If you’re on the road, you can even call the Plant Answer Line at (206) UW-PLANT. Just keep in mind, the folks manning the Plant Answer Line live in the Pacific Northwest (zones 7b – 8b).

If anyone local is interested in joining me, I’d like to make a trip to the library in the next couple weeks. I’m on a mission to find good garden reference books and can’t imagine a better place to do research.

I found these three wonderful resources from watching a Gardening with Ciscoe episode (a local Seattle gardening show) that originally aired on August 15, 2009; click here to see the show details.
