Mike’s Garden Top 5 Plants website was created to help my garden design clients (and the public at large) make appropriate plant choices for their landscapes. To find the trees, shrubs or perennials that you are looking for, simply click on one of the many descriptions in the tag cloud on the right side and the website will bring-up all the relevant selections (there are currently over 3000 available) – for specific plants, just enter either the botanical or common name into the search engine. Please keep in mind that the plants were chosen for conditions in coastal British Columbia (zones 6 to 8) – but they would also be suitable for the UK and the US Pacific Northwest.
