Plants are a major living part of any garden. This is the area for sites who focus on specific types of plants. The subcategories have been grouped first by plant type, then by plant name. If a site focuses on one specific type of plant, it will be listed in the plant name subcategory. If there is no plant name subcategory, then the site will be listed in the plant type category until there are enough sites to create a new subcategory. Sites that sell plants will not be listed here.
