Welcome! I love landscape ornamental plants of all types!

Ralph Heiden a.k.a. Mr PGC (PlantsGalore.Com), is a Horticulture Educator Emeritus who retired from Michigan State University Extension in 2010. He has an MS degree in ornamental horticulture and has taught horticulture and gardening classes or seminars to thousands of homeowners, hobbyists and Master Gardeners over the past 3 decades. He is also an avid photographer with a very large collection of plant and garden images from the U.S., Canada, Western Europe and Great Britain.

I have been developing a couple of websites which specialize in information about landscape gardens and ornamental plants.

Since retirement, I have been writing some E-books on a variety of landscape horticultural topics. I have titled these as "A Rookie's Guide to..." with the intent of offering basic information for the hobbyist or relatively new gardener.

So far, I have published the following titles with more in the works. They are available through Amazon.com and Lulu.com in a variety of formats.
