Gardeners never have to be in the dark when it comes to getting their questions answered, even after the local nursery, garden center or big-box store has closed for the day. Planttalk Colorado is available with information and helpful videos 24 hours a day.
The multimedia area of the website offers YouTube videos which show even the most novice gardener or homeowner how to plant or prune a tree, reseed a lawn or grow the best tomato. There are currently 50 videos available, each providing a helpful step-by-step process.
More than 600 topics
Planttalk Colorado, a joint effort of CSU Extension, Denver Botanic Gardens and the Green Industries of Colorado, provides reliable information on more than 600 horticultural topics – from annual and perennials to vegetables and houseplants to insects and diseases. Much of the information comes in the form of research-based fact sheets, which provide gardeners with the basic details plus, in many instances, additional links for related information.
Planttalk Colorado has the answers to your gardening questions, even “after hours.”
