Americans love to garden, and whether you're a "dabbler" or a a pro, there's a new web site which can help you make the most of your plot.
It's mySEASONS.com and -- yes -- they want to sell you things.
But in addition, there is a wealth of free information about what to plant, how to plant it and what to do if things go wrong.
There are areas on the website where you can send in questions to gardening experts. You can also tailor your garden inventory to best suit the climate and conditions in this part of the world.
"What the online allows you to do is to plan and strategize and fantasize and connect," explained Barry Marchessault, mySEASONS.com president and CEO.
"A local garden store would not carry anywhere near the kind of quantity of different products that we carry, a lot of unique product," he said.
mySEASONS.com has teamed up with the National Gardening Association to provide content for the website. NGA president David Els said the joint objective is "to create the largest community of gardeners on the Web."
"I'm always impressed with how much you can do with so little in Texas," Els added.
