Thank you so much for this list. I’ve been looking for some good gardening blogs but wasn’t able to find a lot untill i stumbled upon your post. Thanks!
Mike just a quick question for you. I’ve found some awesome wax planter pots and would like to transplant some indoor tropical plants to them, would it harm the plants?
I don’t see how or why it would harm your plants. But I really don’t know what the pots are truly made of so I am guessing.

Mary Ann says
I sure appreciate your selection of my blog as one of your favorites! I just found the information.
Mike, I just recently “found” out about you and your business and am trying to find anything I can in your blogs, letters, etc. Just love your style of teaching and enjoy how you present and share your knowledge with others who are interested in progressing with their gardening skills. I have since propagated about 25 plants and they seem to all be taking…next I need to sign up for your course. Hope to be able to supplement my soon to receive poor little SS check! Am interested in joining the “garden family” and sharing in the fun! Would like to do this in honor of my mother and grandmother who were avid gardeners…thanks for being the motivator!!!!! Marjorie
Thanks Marjorie, I truly appreciate your kind words. I hope you do join our family of Backyard Growers! https://mikesbackyardnursery.com/2013/03/how-to-make-65%C2%A2-per-square-inch-in-your-backyard/
