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

Garden Plant identification and pruning guide website

April 23, 2011

I’ve produced a garden plant identification and pruning guide website. It’s Free to browse

You can search for plants by any combination of Latin or common name, months, height,aspect etc.

it’s very easy to navigate. Just enter your search requirements, press search, and the best plants to suit your needs appear as thumbnail images.

Click on an image and you open up the plant description, illustrated pruning advice, pests and diseases plus I’ve added some time-lapses to accompany some plants. In most cases we’ve explained what the Latin names mean.

There are over 3,600 UK garden plants and over 10,000 images

The plant selection covers many different types of plants from annuals to vegetables and trees plus wildflowers and weeds.

The site is still in developments so we’re adding new functions and information over the next months and years.

We are looking for contributors with images and plant expertise. If you can help please contact neil@complete-gardens.co.uk


Pea hypogeal germination underground time lapse

November 16, 2010

Here is a time lapse I made to show hypogeal germination.

The pea germinating underground and growing was filmed over a period of about 6 weeks.

Filmed by Neil Bromhall

I’ve made a British interactive plant finder and pruning guide CD-ROM. The software is designed to help you find the right plants for the right place and easy to use.  PC & MAC compatible

For further information please see my web site www.rightplants4me.co.uk

I have also made an on-line version interactive plant finder, identifier and pruning guide web site.  www.rightplants4me.co.uk which I hope you find interesting.

It has over 3,700 garden plants, 10,000 photographs plus time lapse sequences and each plant has in-depth plant care and illustrated pruning advice.

The plant database is continuing to grow.  If you have good quality photographs of garden plants that are not not already on the database I’d like to hear from you with an interest of adding it to the collection.

Tomato blight identification on fruit and what to do. Time-lapse

September 25, 2009

Tomato blight is weather-dependent and can be devastating during wet summers. Watch out for signs on outdoor tomatoes, which are most at risk; glasshouse tomatoes are less likely to become infected though the spores are carried in the wind and will enter through open windows and doors.

Tomato blight on leaf

Tomato blight on leaf

Early Blight can affect the foliage, stems and fruit of tomatoes.

Symptoms: Dark spots with concentric rings develop on older leaves first. The surrounding leaf area may turn yellow.

Affected leaves may die prematurely, exposing the fruits to sun scorching.
Management: Early Blight fungus overwinters in plant residue and is soil-borne. It can also come in on transplants. Remove affected plants and thoroughly clean fall garden debris. Wet weather and weak stressed plants increase the likelihood of attack. Copper and/or sulfur sprays can prevent further development of the fungus
Late Blight is caused by a fungus, Phytophthora infestans. It’s the same disease that led to the Irish potato famine almost 150 years ago.

The disease is not directly harmful to people as it only infects potatoes, tomatoes, and some related weeds, but it is not advised to eat the infected fruit or tubers.
It is important to catch any tomato disease early, before it spreads to all of your tomato plants and possibly other plants in the same family, such as potatoes, eggplants and peppers.
Look for brown, rapidly spreading patches on leaves and stems. The fruit, too, may show firm, quickly spreading brown patches followed by rotting. Infected parts die rapidly.
Destroy infected plants; but do not compost them as the plant residue is soil-borne and will spread the disease to your next years crop.
Late blight needs living plant tissue to survive, so infected tomato plants should be destroyed as soon as the disease is identified. In small gardens, this means removing plants in trash bags and sending them to the landfill;
