Useful Reference for the Gardener or those who just want to learn more about the plants around them: for example, calendula, which yellow flower is seeding all over my yard. Once you've learned how to grow it, you can visit Mrs. Grieve's Modern Herbal, which will tell you what to do with your harvest. Don't forget to check the handy Index of Poisons before you move on to the recipes.

This is great fun! I have no idea what cabbage trees are but am going to go look now and see what's up, esp cause they're in the poison link and not the recipe one. Nice job, goth.

So why no Arctostaphylos? Hookerii?

I'm suddenly realizing that this site is probably specific to North Carolina. Great resource, nonetheless ...
