The "A Rookie's Guide to..." eBooks provided through have all been written by Ralph Heiden a.k.a. Mr PGC, a retired horticulturist. He has nearly 30 years of experience teaching and writing about all aspects of home horticulture during his years as a student and horticulture educator with Michigan State University.

These eBooks are meant for the hobbyist backyard gardener or Master Gardener who wants to get more from his or her landscape. Some are part of a series while others stand on their own. The goal is to provide practical, science based information to make you a better gardener and a better consumer of professional horticultural services.

When we look at other sites that sell eBooks, we get the feeling that we are visiting a used car lot. They seem to be full of big promises and "buy one get one free" offers. Reminds us of the old saying, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

Here, we will just describe our eBooks and let you make the decision on whether to buy or not. We try to do the best we can with each eBook by making the information practical and easily accessible to everyone...regardless of their level of expertise and experience.

Ralph is an avid photographer so the eBooks are loaded with images to illustrate key points. When an image features a single species of plant, it is labeled with the common name, scientific name and the name of the cultivar, if known. It is always frustrating to see a plant picture and not be able to go out and buy one for your garden.

All our eBooks are loaded with hyperlinks to relevant topics on the website. In some cases, links to other sites are also included to help you understand the topic better.

Everything we sell or do comes with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. We will work with you to make you happy or gladly return your money. Your satisfaction is always our goal. Believe it or not, we are primarily concerned with helping you become a better landscape gardener so you can enjoy your garden to the utmost!
