A garden railroad is more than an an outdoor model railway. Even if you run your g-scale trains on the lawn or among the weeds, those plants are your "garden." But for most of us, designing a garden -- selecting and caring for miniature plants -- is a great part of the fun we find in model railroading. This page is a hub from which you can select and read articles on all aspects of railroad gardening, from basic instructions on how to make sure your garden will support the plants you want to see on your model train layout, to expert advice on the best species and varieties for every sort of "look," from formal and evergreen to informal and colourful.
