A friend (who usually knows what he's talking about) has just posted this on another forum we're both members of:

"...As of this morning, photobucket the picture hosting site have put a block on any links to photos stored on their site. This means that you will not be able to see any of the pictures that I have linked to. This will affect others that use the photobucket site. Pictures can be linked, but only with a paid subscription, which is somewhat higher than most hosting sites that you run yourself...."

I don't use Photobucket so have no way of checking it out, but thought I'd flag this up ...

Ok ... sometimes those of us who grew up gardening forget how much most people don't know ...  

firstly ... put simply transpiration is how roots take in moisture, then it travels up through the plant and out through the leaves where it evaporates ... the evaporation takes place quicker in sunny and windy conditions.   It's sort of the plant's equivalent of breathing.  

This site explains a lot of gardening terms 

http://www.thegardenhelper.coy m/dictionary.html 

I don't know of other books ...  perhaps someone else will ... but please don't be afraid to ask any questions on here, even if you think it's very basic  ... we're always happy to help ... someone usually knows the answer 

and you may find some help in the How to... section of this website
