"Geoff Hamilton's Plant Encyclopedia includes over 4,000 plants,
each illustrated with
a photograph on a record card that also provides a description
and cultivation notes. Icons indicate height, spread and
conditions required for plants. Foliage and flowering plants
include a display indicating the months in which they add
interest to your garden. There are notes on soil type and which
'themes' the plant would fit in with: container plants, cottage
garden, drought resistant, and so on. Plus, you can search for
plants that satisfy several criteria. Rating *** Classic title
that is still usable."

"There are major advantages compared to being presented with the
same information in printed form. In particular, as well as being
able to search for plants using their names (either common or
Latin) as you would with a book, you can search by lots of other
criteria. Want a plant that blooms in July, has red flowers,
favours partial shade and grows no more than one metre tall? No
problem - just enter these criteria on the search page and you'll
be given a list of plants to scroll through. Excellent value for
money. Rating ****"
