A beautifully written and illustrated blog from U.K. gardeners Mark and Gaz who grow a wide range of hardy exotic and tropical plants in their lush garden north of London. I continue to be amazed and inspired by what they have achieved.

WEBSITES I VISIT REGULARLY

BambooWeb
http://www.bambooweb.info/bb/index.php
The biggest online forum for bamboo aficionados. The place to visit to exchange information with fellow 'boo nuts and to learn from experts who've grown bamboo for many years. More than 5,000 photos of more than 480 varieties.

Bamboo Forum on GardenWeb
http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/bamboo/
Not quite as much traffic as BambooWeb but still worth a visit every couple of weeks.  

American Bamboo Society
http://www.americanbamboo.org/
Site desperately needs a face lift but it does have the most current Species Source List of the ABS. This invaluable resource lists virtually all bamboos currently available in the U.S. and Canada.
