How to Do a Search on the Laidback Gardener Website

Nothing horticulture today. Instead, just bit of housekeeping.

There’s now a Search button on the Laidback Gardener site.

With more than 900 blogs posted so far on the Laidback Gardener website, it’s not always easy to find your way around, yet until recently, there was no Search button. Well, I twisted my son Mathieu’s arm and he’s managed to add the missing piece. You’ll find it on the left side of the screen, just at the bottom of the menu.

Just enter your subject (here I chose “suckers on tomatoes”) and click.

All you have to do is to type in the subject that interests you and to click on the icon to the right or simply to press the Enter key.

The subject you requested will appear if it’s available.

You will then be quickly transported to the subject of your choice… if there is such a subject on Laidback Gardener website, of course.

Small Screens

All you have to do then is to type in the subject that interests you and to click on Go to find it.


Go ahead and give it a spin! There are answers to almost all your horticultural questions on the Laidback Gardener website!
