Names of Plants

Surrey, United Kingdom Gb

I haven't listed any plants in the Garden section of my homepage because to be perfectly honest I have no idea how to go about it.
I see other members' plants are listed alphabetically and with the botanical name. I'm not that sure of the common names of some of mine. Any advice most welcome.



Look on the right hand side of the page and you'll see 'Add Plants' next to a green circle with a +. Click on that and you'll be able to enter your plant's details.

If you start typing the common names or latin names in the 'Botanical Name' section it will produce a list of possible matches to what you're trying to add. You don't have to add any notes or pictures.

The plants will be listed alphabetically automatically under the 'Garden' section of 'Your Profile'.

If you're struggling to find your plants names you can always take a photo of it and post it on the 'Gardening Questions' section for us to identify.

Hope that helps!
