Hard-core gardeners may consider this cheating. If you’re hard-core, this MAY not be the post for you. We’re all about equal-opportunity gardening here at Bite Size Gardening, so there ARE plenty of posts for everyone:
- find out how to make your own AMAZING soil here
- expand your knowledge of marigolds
- learn why coffee grounds are better for compost than mulch
- which flowers are edible
- how to attract bees to your garden that don’t sting
- growing vegetables in shady plots
- making your own dibble (what’s a dibble, anyway?)
THIS post is about where to find high-quality and FREE botanical illustrations that are ready to print and frame. Plants to adorn your house that need zero care. No water, fertilizer or pruning. No repotting. Even the hard-core can appreciate that.
My favorite sources for FREE botanical illustrations in the public domain (so NO copyright issues):
- VintagePrintable.com: This site is going through a remodel, and they’re beta-testing a couple of different platforms. It’s a little harder to find specific prints if you go back (like I do) to get one. HOWEVER, the quality and ease of downloading is worth it, and I suspect they’ll decide on a platform soon.
- theGraphicsFairy.com: Another option for finding high-quality botanical prints in many categories: edibles, educational, etc.
Both sites are searchable, so if you want an apple and a pear to hang in your kitchen, or an educational plate or two for your office, I’d bet you’ll find it on one of these sites. Oh – and botanical prints make great gifts.
