Sorry you're having some difficulty. Here's how you get around My Shade Garden:
Buttons to the primary areas of the web site (Shade Gardens, Gardening Plans, ...) are listed just below the banner at the top of the page. Press on one of them and off you go.
A button to get you back to our home page is on every page in the left column near the top.
Context Dependent Links
Buttons to other areas of the web site are also found in the right column. They show topics related to the page you are reading and will change based on the page you are looking at. For example, within the Garden Plants Encyclopedia area, the buttons in the right column will show the different types of searches you can perform.
Popular Page Links
Near the bottom of the page are text links to a number of popular pages. You may well have used the "Help !" link to get here.
In addition to the buttons and text links, our pages make extensive use of hyperlinks within the text.
You can search My Shade Garden from here.
You can search the Online Plant Encyclopedia also.
If you have a general question, you can post it at our Discussion Forum.
