Help us build the best plant care database for gardeners by contributing your knowledge - all are welcome. Win free membership if you are one of our top 5 contributors of the year!

Before you start....

We have a couple of quick rules of thumb to be aware of before you get started:

  1. Ensure all descriptions you add are your own - please don't copy and paste from other places on the internet.
  2. Write for a global audience: keep your local observations for your gardening journal and milestones.
  3. Keep it as factual as possible!
  4. Don't remove other people's contributions - try adding to and making them better instead.
