    I have no cp's. But I am very interested. I am in the process of moving into a new house that has lots of potential for growing all kinds of plants. There is a "florida" room that could very easily be made into a small green house.
    I have learned alot already just by reading some of the post on this board.
    Is there a book that everyone agrees is the best out there?

    There are several good books. This link will take you to Amazon's selection. Savage Garden is an excellent start. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Oh yeah... welcome to the forums.

    Ora le

    Just buy a plant. Jump off the deep end. Life is to short to mess around. Ask question here. They shall be answered, but not always rightly. But that's good to, no?

    Greetings Machete,

    Welcome to our world, prepare to be assimilated [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    So obviously everyone has told you about Savage Garden. It is indeed a good book but I want to add that everything in there should be taken only as general guidelines. Pete has been growing for 20+ years and I think he forgets that something that are natural and simple for him are actually a bit tricky for the newbie.

    I would also recommend either/both of Adrian Slack's books. The older one is easier to find and more comprehensive IMHO but the newer one has great pictures.

    Finally, like Tim said, get a plant and ask lots of questions. There are a ton of people here who can/will answer you.

    Good growing

    Welcome to the Forums, and to the world of CP. I moderate the Sundew Forum (which are after all the most beautiful of all CP). I look forward to the assimilation, errr, association!
