Hampton, GA (PRWEB) March 22, 2010
As Winter turns to Spring and everyone looks forward to warmer weather and the excitement of planting flowers in their gardens, one woman hopes that through her knowledge of flowers, that everyone can have a safe and happy planting season. Flower-Guide.org (http://www.flower-guide.org) is the brainchild of Jessica Golden, a Georgia native and single mother of one daughter who is using her extensive knowledge of flowers in hopes of educating the public on what flowers to plant and which ones to stay away from.
"Many people go about planting flowers without knowing which ones are poisonous and toxic to the local wildlife," says Golden. "Because of this, some of the local wildlife population dwindles, sometimes to the point of becoming endangered." Saving the lives of local wildlife isn't the only thing on Jessica's mind, however. "I believe it is important for parents to know what flowers are safe to handle and which ones you should stay away from. Some flowers are so toxic that simply handling them without the proper gloves can make someone sick, so imagine what would happen if a child were to ingest the flower. Also, sometimes gardeners unknowingly plant flowers that local wildlife tend to love to eat. An example of this is petunias. Rabbits love petunias and will eat the entire plant if given the chance. I know this because I learned the hard way. Had I known this when I first planted, I would have either planted something else or put my petunias in a place where the rabbits couldn't get to them."
Since its conception in mid-February of this year, flower-guide.org has already managed to make it to the top 10 in yahoo's search engine results for the keywords Flower Guide, where it currently fluctuates between positions 6 and 7. Golden credits the unique content of flower-guide.org for its success.
Currently flower-guide.org has flower profiles separated by season, as well as articles and even a Contact Form to give feedback. But that is just the beginning, as Golden has a lot more planned in the months and years to come. "I hope to add more things in the future, such as forums, more articles, flower wallpaper, and even a place where users can add their own stories-- just to name a few," says Jessica. "It's a very exciting time right now and the sky's the limit with possibilities."
