Using this site

If you landed at The Curious Gardener because you were searching for some information online, here are a few tips on how to better search this site:

Categories: There are 2 ways to use categories. The first is via the links at the end of each post (This entry was posted in…). Click on the category that interests you and a list of posts in that category will be displayed. The second way is to use the Search by category pulldown menu on the right, just above Recent Comments. Note that there are general categories, with more specific ones within them. I’ve tried to be methodical in categorizing my information. Scan through to see if any of the categories match what you’re searching for. Selecting any will produce a list of posts in each of those categories. Categories cover broad, general topics, e.g. garden pests, vining plants, flowering plants.

Tags: At the end of each post, you’ll see a list of words or terms under “tagged“. Tags are specific  to individual items, e.g. long beans, Red Lady papaya, Keng Hwa flower. I do try to apply these tags appropriately in every post so that they are categorized for an easy search (yes, even for myself). Clicking on a relevant tag should call up all my posts on that topic – even those not categorized by search engines.

I tend to “spring clean” from time to time to try to streamline my tags and categories. As my knowledge and understanding grow, I am able to narrow down the number of categories, to make it easier to navigate around the site. This unfortunately may mess up some of your bookmarks or search engine effectiveness, so I apologize for that. However, as nature grows and evolves, so must we, and I hope I’m improving the site this way!
