You can buy it as a book each year, Alexandre, it's published in the UK by the Royal Horticultural Society and you can look up a plant and find Nurseries that sell it - in the UK.

The RHS also have a website - www.RHS.org - where there are all sorts of interesting things including the Plantfinder. Take a look!
