As I gardened, and then when writing the website pages, I found both time honored principles and cutting edge technologies were important garden information. It is sometimes joked about (amongst ourselves) how slow the garden sector is to pick up new technology, but I don’t think that is entirely true… it is more a case that we want dependable results. More gardeners are getting their information and passing along tips on the internet. My site reflects some of that change, and is a part of it.
Have fun exploring and please come back regularly, a free email subscription could make that easy for you.
About the page
Originally “Ilona’s Garden” was part of my “Ilona’s Reflecting Pool” site on geocities. It started out with the idea that I would write a small section on gardening experience, but it grew as more and more pages were added, until it became the largest part of the ‘Ilona’s Reflecting Pool’. It was time to move to its own domain.
What others have said of my site:
“Now with its own dedicated URL, the aim of Ilona’s Garden is to provide useful ideas and information for the home gardener, particularly in relation to design and maintenance. The design of the website is elegant and attractive, with information well laid out and easy to find. There are appropriate images and links throughout the site, and references to the author’s own garden and experiences help give the site a sense of personality. Sections include advice on choosing a garden style, seasonal tips, design and information, and garden plants, making this is an informative and delightful site. Awarded a Sapling Commendation.”

I have seen lots of changes in the internet garden scene, most of them have been improvements in site design and serving up great gardening tips. As the daunting task of writing about gardening has dawned on me I have reduced my scope to what I know: Central Ohio Gardening. Hope you enjoy the pages and the growth of my garden site, and I hope you will be a part of it, too. Please bookmark me! Press Ctrl + D
I started an experiment in garden journaling on blogger when blogging was fairly new, around March of 2004. It’s grown so much I have found it hard to keep up!
Because some have wondered….

Thank you so much for considering this For many years I put untold hours of work into the pages just for the love of giving free information and advice.
