Like your site. Got any tips for dealing with caterpillars? They scare my girlfriend to death...

Attack of the killer 'pillars? Leave 'm alone, and hope they turn into butterflies (most of them don't, but that's okay)

Oh my gosh. What a wonderful job you have done. I am looking at your spiders and dragonflies. My daughters, Rachel and Violet, they love to look at the spiders we have too and the dragonflies too. Your whole website is so amazing, you must be a genius. I wish I had a husband like you. Your wife is lucky. Well, I'm going to go and look some more. Thanks for the wonderful website. Susan

Rob - What an amazing web site! I had no idea what wonderful mischief you were up to on the internet... Where is the yukky spider your charming wife told me about?? I can't wait until I buy my first property next year. I will be counting on this web site for my garden inspiration!! xo

Sheila, Sheila - that spider isn't yukky - she's cool! You can find her here.

Thank you for visiting my site (A Southern Garden) and for your kind comments. I've been touring your site for the past half hour and am truly astonished at the number of plants that you grow. I hate that I missed that plant sale! :( Keep up the great work. I think your site is wonderful.

A wonderful, organized, informative, attractive website! I enjoyed my visit to your virtual garden, and will be revisiting your seed-starting pages next spring. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience. Happy gardening!! (June 22, 2004)
cool site
mike cronin (June 20, 2004)
I'm grateful that I discovered your website through our correspondence on the Butterfly Garden Forum. I'm VERY IMPRESSED with your garden and all the helpful information on your website. Also, happy that you're getting into butterfly watching. I'll bet your many gardens are magnets for various types of butterflies. Happy gardening/butterfly watching, mike
Gail Chapman, A Garden of Distinction, S (May 25, 2004)
Your web site is terrific. Wish I could come to the plant sale. But I'm a little far away. My daughter lives in Hopkinton, Ma about 26 miles from Boston. How far are you from Hopkinton? I am in search of Sedum aizoon varigata, 40 plants, kniphophia trangualaris, 8 plants, phormium guardsman, 2 plants. Do you have any suggestions? (Heronswood does not have them.) Thanks for your help. Best regards, Gail Visit us at

Thanks Gail. I tried to send you an email to the address listed at your website, but earthlink spit it back to me. You can email me directly at

Monica Marquette (May 10, 2004)
You have a beautiful garden! Can't wait till the 2005 sale.
amy (May 09, 2004)
nice garden. I wish ours looked like that!

My dear wife, she cracks me up...

Phillip Allen (May 05, 2004)
Thank you for posting a terrific site! I, too, have been raising plants from seed for a long time, and admire the dedication required to 1) stay so organized, and 2) to summarize and share so much information with the rest of us. I also use and teach a variant of the baggy germination technique, and heartily encourage everyone to try it. For the vast majority of taxa it is the most successful method I've found, and makes it practical to experiment with a great variety of plants in a tiny amount of space (at least until germination!). I am sadly far enough away from your garden to make visiting a serious expedition, but perhaps one day! Again, many thanks! Phillip Allen Winsted, CT

Thanks for the kind words. If you're ever in the neighborhood, you're welcome to stop by...

Laura Lee (April 22, 2004)
Really great Site, you have the best "thank you"
Jamie (April 06, 2004)
Nice site with lots of great information. I liked the photos of your seed starting operations. I noticed your plant marker for Sedum sieboldi. Is it one you made or purchased?

Thanks Jamie. I get my plant markers from Paw Paw - look at my links page.

Bill (April 02, 2004)
Hi Rob, very nice site. Well done! I am not too great with the innards of the computer. When I download the seed organizer, I only get jibberish. I know these letters and symbols mean something. But I really don't know how to do the zip thing. I am adding the site to mine today. Thanks!

Thanks for your comments, Bill. If you need some help with the tool, please e-mail me.

Hello, I like your information, but I find it EXTREMELY difficult to read black print against a green background. Very difficult, indeed.

I appreciate your comments, and have changed the background to a lighter color.

Taryn from GardenWeb (March 30, 2004)
Hi Rob, Thoroughly enjoyed the virtual tour! You have a delightful piece of lushness! And a very helpful and informative website! Would love to trade seed next year! I've already gone 'over the top' this year, lol! Loved the pic of proud Max with his carrots, that is terrific! I have 3 boys, and hopefully they will be hauling compost around for Mum soon! Taryn :)
Carla Beltgens (March 30, 2004)
Compliments on your webdesign! It's well worth a visit because it has lots of usefull information. Ik kom vast nog een keertje langs om eens rond te snuffelen op je pagina. Succes met je plantenverkoopdag, wat een leuk idee! Groeten van Carla uit Nederland.

Hi, I really enjoyed reading about your garden and seeing the photographs. We have a little acreage (about 50) in the high country and get hot days of 40c on occasion and lots and lots of frost. Am endeavouring to do what you appear to be doing growing an [rest of message cut off due to website problem]
