Thank you for the survey feedback
4th January 2012
Thank you to everyone who took part in the survey (over 200). NOW the site is being re-designed even though we said that a few months ago.
We want to get it right this time. We are focussing on Gardening and Supplier interests. It will take a few weeks.
Let us know what you want on the new site!
3rd October 2011Please visit the home page and fill out a quick survey. It only takes a few seconds. It will greatly help us learn what new features you most want on the re-designed site. Or if you prefer just email us with suggestions using the contact link at the end of the page - thanks!
Site being re-designed
1st August 2011We are currently redesigning the site to be more magazine style and users will be able to submit articles too. It will take about one month.
Gardening and horticultural information
27th June 2011Just to note we will be concentrating on adding gardening and horticultural information and functionality over the next few months as we know this is lacking on the site. This will include relating pests and diseases to every plant, gardening and horticultural articles, tasks to do in the garden, add your own private garden (and rate others!). We will also add over 600 gardens to visit all over the world. After that we will add a 'Seed Bank'. Suppliers will be able to promote themselves with plants lists. In addition we will add 'swap' lists etc. for regular users. Watch this space!
Comments can now be added to user images
26th June 2011
You can now add comments to the images users have uploaded. You must be logged in to do this. Once you add a comment the person adding it will be notified and vice versa.
This will be done via your toolbox just like all other alerts on the top right of every page.
22nd June 2011You can now add Glossary terms to the database. Just click the 'Glossary' link in the toolbar.
- The young plants of Pseudopanax crassifolius and Pseudopanax ferox from New Zealand grow spiny leaves to deter what is now an extinct giant flightless bird called a Moa from eating them. Once these small trees grow above about 8 feet tall the leaves change shape and texture to flattened spinless softer leaves. When mature it branches out to form a canopy.
