I appreciate my gardening books but there is nothing like Â immediate access to information for plants that can be found online.
Have you heard of Gardenology.org?
It’s an online plant and gardening encyclopedia modeled after the popularÂ “Wikipedia.”
So far, Gardenology.org Â has 16,711 plant entries and other articles written and edited by gardeners from around the globe, with 15,252 photos.

What I like about Gardenology.org is that it’s an interactive site.
Registered members, (don’t worry, it’s free) can add new plant information and edit information about entries already on the site.
(Of course this kind of platform is subject to both high quality information and some that is less so).
This said, the “self policing” editing policy ensures that as more users participate, “inferior” information is weeded out.
I couldn’t help myself with that pun!
Some of the information that you will find on Gardenology.org:
1. “Featured Plant” with photo and extended information
2. Reference database with botany basics, cultivation, propagation, Â plant maintenance, glossary of botanical names and glossary of gardening terms
3. A member’s forum and discussion board
4. Gardening ideas, trivia and more!
The creator of Gardenology is a young passionate gardener named Rafi. Rafi’s background in information and project management gave him a tech advantage and his passion for gardening, the catalyst for creating the site.
Check out Gardenology.org and help it grow into a huge plant and gardening database with relevant, regional Â information!
