Below are some links to our favourite sites. Hope you find them as interesting and useful as we do. At the bottom of the page are links to several sites which provide free graphics for web pages and ask for nothing in return other than a link back to them. I thank them for the many items I have used on these pages and without which my site would have been far less interesting to look at. Please let us know of any links that no longer work. Unfortunately since our last update several excellent sites such as Asle Serigstad, Marco Bleeker and Graham's Paradise have gone the way of too many good ones. Links marked "new" are recently added to replace those that have been lost to us.

If you're designing a web page then pay them a visit for backgrounds, buttons, lines, animated icons - you name it! It never ceases to amaze me how many people are out there working away providing software etc. for free. Of excellent quality too - dare I say often better than programs you have to pay hard earned cash for!

Have a look at the amazing plant name search facility at the Missouri Botanical Garden accessing their VAST (VAScular Tropicos) nomenclatural database and associated authority files. Can be very useful at times.

If it's links you want then go to the Backyard Gardener. There you will find a huge listing of alpine and rock gardening sites, Botanic and other gardens, flora links and flower photos......and it saves me listing hundreds of them here - why re-invent the wheel!

kellydalenursery101.gif IBS Robin member Gary Buckley's homepage on Suite101.com. A nice interactive site - join in the discussions on all sorts of gardening topics. Suite101 is, as Gary puts it, a great place to hang out, a virtual community.
Gallery of pictures sent in by members of the Alpine-L list. Quality variable, but the best are well worth a look. This is now held at Alan Grainger's Alpine Garden site. Best viewed in 800 x 600 resolution.

More superb photos here, this time of crocus. The image content of this website is built around a collection of Crocus plants grown by Tony Goode who gardens in Norwich UK. The plants are part of the NCCPG National Collections Scheme, which promotes the conservation of plants in cultivation.

An Australian Nursery somewhat similar to our own in that it is run part time by the owner, Dirk Wallace, and sells rarer and unusual bulbs. He has two bulb lists and a seed list each year, together with additional lists for his collections of Rainlilies (Habranthus and Zephyranthes) and Helleborus. He exports both bulbs and seed.

It is wonderful to see a renewed interest in gardening, and in particular an enthusiasm for growing our own fruit and vegetables. The dedicated people at Koanga Gardens in Northland, New Zealand, have spent many years sourcing and saving many heritage varieties of our food crops. This is their invaluable site.
