"Ashley says . . ."

Ashley takes a walk through her garden every morning just to see what's happening.  "It's coming along" is her standard reply to everyone that compliments her hard work.  Ashley likes to use The Compleat Botanica to discover even more about her favorite plants. 

Did you know?

Q:  Does the botanical name have to be in every specimen list?

A:  No.  As a reasonable first guess, new filters start out with the botanical name as the first column of every filter.  This is entirely optional.

If you choose a different item to replace it, you will have a surprisingly different looking specimen list.  This is because the first item in the filter is always displayed in the prominent top-half of each specimen row.  This position does not scroll left and right with the rest of the list, but stays fixed to the left-hand side of the list. see the full story.

Tips . . .

  Here's a step-by-step guide to adding a new category.

A:  Adding a new category to the list of pre-installed categories is simple. You'll most likely want to do this with some of the more flexible items such as Garden location and Nursery. These are typically the types of items that tend to be the most user-specific. By contrast, items such as USDA Zones, soil pH, and Sunset climate zones tend to be rarely, if ever, supplemented.  see the full story.
