Imperial system of measurements

Question Your product apparently uses the Imperial system of measurements.  I saw "gallons" etc. in your description, and I haven't got the slightest idea what a gallon is.
Answer The Compleat Botanica allows you to choose whether to use metric or U.S. Customary System units.  Both systems are fully supported.  The two most important measurement scales for plants are length and temperature.  Length measurements can be represented in centimetres/metres or inches/feet.  Temperature measurements can be represented in Celsius or Fahrenheit.

The quaint American system for describing plant containers is to describe them in terms of their volume capacity; thus, we have "1 gallon pots".  (A gallon is a unit of volume equal to approximately 4.546 liters in the British Imperial System or 3.785 liters in the U.S. Customary System.)
