Gardening as I do it relies mostly on trying to learn what the plant likes best and then treat her that way. That does not mean, however, that I never consult books, blogs or websites. Quite the contrary, I love browsing plants.
Transition to winter is indeed one of the periods when advice (on how to overwinter beoved plants in a small city space) is needed most and therefore I start checking wikipedia as well as on- and offline resources.
This book on herbs matched my needs, since its entries matched my plants.
More plants and words and lots more words on plants can be found on the Urban Jungle Bloggers’ website.
