This website was designed for professional landscape designers, horticulturists, nurserymen, home gardeners, natural history buffs and anyone interested in improving the ecology of local environments for future generations of people, plants and animals.

In the subtitle, I use the word “cultural” to imply a double meaning. Each treatment in the encyclopedia covers both the growing or cultural requirements of each species and its cultural use by people (and wildlife).

Being a fan of natural history writers such as Stephen Jay Gould & Jared Diamond, and a leisurely hiker and botanizer, I also wanted to include interesting and useful facts about each species within their natural place in the world and how they interact with their environment.

I had originally planned to continue to add more plant profiles, but I have been distracted by other interests…

I am giving my son, Sky Hawk Bressette, access to my sites to make any changes, corrections, or additions. I will add his bio to the “About me ” tab.

I no longer check my email through my website.--too much SPAM to go through! If you want to contact me, you can message me through Facebook, or contact me through Woodbrook Nursery.
