Help Me Choose Some Plants
Hello my fellow GRIT readers!
Chris and I just had a great idea. We want to know more about certain plants and different cultivars so we can be knowledgeable about them when we are designing properties. With that in mind we have found some really awesome resources, and we’d like to share them with YOU!
We posted our first plant profile on our other blog, Comfrey Can Do! Check it out.

Which brings me to my request. I need some help picking more plants to feature. We already have a list started (things like columnar apples, seaberry and garlic), BUT I want to know what you want to know about. Keep in mind that we are in the Pacific Northwest, and we will be focusing on plants that we can grow here. However, we are open to any and all suggestions. SO suggest away!
Thanks for your help!
