Mr PGC travels around the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland and Europe gathering information and taking pictures i.e. "capturing images" in today's tech speak. He visits many retail nurseries and ornamental plant test gardens each spring and summer to gather images of the best (and sometimes worst) landscape plants. We are proud of the images we have on the website and strive to upgrade them all the time.

Although our major goal is to provide good, detailed information on landscaping and landscape ornamental plants, we are, after all, a business. So, we ask two things if you would like to use our images:

1. If you are a not for profit organization, please give us credit and a link to our website.

2. If you are using the images in a profit making process, please get our permission and pay us for our efforts.

Please read our image use policy below for the details. Contact us if you have any questions.

Thank you,
