Your questions about garden and plants are important to me, and I want to help you with correct, prompt answers. 

Please allow enough time for me to research the answer to your question, usually a few hours or overnight depending on the difference in our time zones.

I try and answer your questions as quickly as possible, especially when there is some urgency to it; however, if your question is about a poisonous plant that a child has ingested, go immediately to the emergency room or contact medical personnel.  Take a piece of the plant along for them to identify.

If you feel I've given you an incomplete answer, please email me, or comment below your question, and I'll try and give you more information.
