Re: Elisabeth C. Miller Horticultural Library

Downtown Seattle has some wonderfull rooftop & balcony gardens. Most are
private. With the frequent, usually plentiful rainfall, hand watering isn't
such a problem I guess.

> Tucked away within the numerous specialized subject libraries at the
> University of Washington is a gem known as the Elisabeth C. Miller
> Horticultural Library. The library has several main directives,
> including service to the Center of Urban Horticulture (which is located
> on campus as well) and as a clearinghouse of gardening material for the
> general public. While much of the material available online is geared
> primarily towards working with gardens in the Pacific Northwest, there
> are a number of helpful general materials here as well. The web
> resources section is quite nice, as it contains a number of weblinks
> (selected by staff at the Library) organized around a host of themes,
> including botany, ecology, and arboreta. The Booklists By Topic area
> culls together various lists of important books by topic (over 40 to
> date), covering areas from alpine and rock gardening to water gardening.
> Visitors with young children (or teachers) should find a thorough
> 20-page bibliography, titled
>  Children and Nature, to be an invaluable resource.
