Over the years, the Miller Library staff has created a number of resources to help gardeners find the information they need. Not only are we experts in finding information, but we love plants and gardening. Explore the following resources, plus even more to the left:
Following library tradition, we have over 30 bibliographies, or Booklists by Topic, that highlight the best books to read about organic gardening, South African plants, plant propagation and much more. The booklists also include citations to good magazine articles and web sites.
The Gardening Answers Knowledgebase is a growing database of over 600 questions answered by our reference staff. Also included are over 60 Garden Tools, short book & web site reviews and growing tips. Search the knowledgebase by keyword or browse the long list of subject terms.
What better gift can we give children than introducing the glorious world of gardening and nature? Use the Children and Nature resource list to find the best books for kids interested in plants or for adults working with kids. Over 200 books are described in this 67 page pdf file. All the books may be borrowed.
