Botanical Gardens have produced for a long time annual seed lists for exchange. In some European ones of the 19th century it was customary to include diagnoses, descriptions, and notes either in footnotes or in appendices. These lists were printed in a very limited edition and past issues generally were not kept. None of the old and large libraries in the world has a complete set of them, and the collections that they do have are usually incomplete.
The Gardening Collection gathers resources including factsheets, books, PowerPoint presentations, podcasts and Adobe Connect recordings that were produced by experts in the Department of Horticulture or county-based Cornell Cooperative Extension Horticulture Educators. The collection aims to connect gardeners with research-based information that will lead to successful gardening experience and sustainable landscapes. The content of these resources focuses on identifying landscape vision, assessing landscape, choosing plants, preparing site, installing plants and cultural practices associated with managing landscapes such as pruning and training, crop rotation, nutrient and weed management.
