I’ve added demos to show how rightplants4me.co.uk can help you identify plants and plant information

December 3, 2012

I’ve added demos to show how my interative plant identifier and pruning guide website works. This link will take you to the Articles section where I have various demos wesite is How to use rightplants4me.co.uk works.

Find plants for spring height aspect

 

 

 

 

 

The website is free to browse. However if you want to subscribe you can make visual plant lists ‘Plants I have’ and Plants I want’, plus you can add notes and print them with images. I hope this proves useful to Garden Designers, students and garden enthusiasts alike.

When you link to the demo the opening image will be fussy. This is because I’ve added linked from Youtube but I ca reassure you that the wesite is clear and sharp.

Each plant is accompanied with in-depth description, planting and pruning advice, images and some plants have time lapse sequences attached.

I hope you find the website useful. If you have images of plants that you’d like added to the site then please feel free to contact me neil@complete-gardens.co.uk. Together we can make the site grow into a comprehensive plant identification website.

Best wishes

Right Plants 4 me. Free garden plant advice website

March 19, 2012

A year on and we’ve added and improved the www.rightplants4me.co.uk website.

It’s easy to find and identify garden plants as well as wildflowers and weeds.

Simply select plants by their name, flower and or leaf colour, period of interest, height, aspect and soil type.

You can nor make plants lists. (1) Plants I Have and (2) Plants I want

This is useful when designing your garden to have year round colour and interest.

You can print your plants I want lists and take it with you to the Garden Centre.

Plants I have shows you which plants you have in any chosen month AND it will also let you know which plants you have in any month that need pruning PLUS how to prune them correctly.

You can add your own personal note to any plant. I don’t like labels so I keep a record of my plants and where they are in the garden. This is very useful because for example Clematis look very similar when dormant, with my notes and reminder when to prune my plants I know exactly which Clematis needs pruning, where it is and how to prune it. Some need hard pruning becuase they flower on this years new growth whereas some flower on old wood.

Here is an Iris with a note added

I’ve added time lapses of plants growing and flowers opening. They show some of the fascinating growth and design.

I hope you fine the site useful.

I want to build the site so I’m keen to meet photographers and authors to help the site GROW.

Although the site has UK flowering and planting times, it won’t take too much work to make it specific for the US and European countries. Please let me know if this is of interest.

Best wishes

Elder seedling identification, Sambucus nigra

July 9, 2010

Elder seedling identification Sambucus nigra.

Elder, Sambucus nigra identification

Elder grow quickly and can become a big weed shrub, though they do produce an abundance of fruit for the birds in autumn. The Elder rely on birds to distribute their seeds and is why the Elder are spread wide and far.

It is difficult to identify what the plant by the cotyledons and even the first pair of true leaves. You can identify the Elder when they grow the pinata leaves which grow in oppositepais consisting of two, three or four pairs of broadly egg-shaped, serrated leaflets and terminal one.

Launching our latest garden software at Chelsea Flower Show 2008

May 8, 2008

We had a successful Chelsea Flower Show last year and hope to do even better this year with our 3,500 garden plant selector and pruning guide encyclopaedia, multi plant list version CD-ROM. PC & MAC compatible.

Plant selector and pruning guide CD-ROM

 

The online garden web sites continue to grow. The major sites being the RHS and BBC though one major criticism I’ve heard is they are very slow.

That’s not surprising considering the amount of data and images to be uploaded.

 

I’m delighted that another advantage of our plant selector & pruning guide CD-ROM is it’s not influenced by download time and will therefore find and display the plants and data you want within a few seconds.

 

Although our first garden software was initially designed for the garden novice wanting to find plants to suit their garden, as we’ve increased the plant database we’ve attracted the interest from garden Designers and Garden Design students who need to find suitable plants for a wide range of garden conditions and garden styles.

The Complete gardens CD-ROM does this for them, effortlessly.

By popular request we’ve made a multi plant list version, which allows the user to make as many plant lists with relevant notes as they require. The user can print the lists with images for each of their clients.

Home users can make multi lists for the various parts of their garden.

 

 

We will be launching the 3,500 plant multi plant list version at Chelsea Flower Show 20th May – 24th May on stand EA 34.

I’d be delighted to demonstrate how our PC & MAC compatible garden software works.
