"Mrs. Thompson says . . ."

On garden club sales days the hubbub is half the fun.  But everyone agrees that those unfortunate, unlabeled and out-of-season plants never sell.  Mrs. Thompson has found the answer "I've got one of those new digital cameras.  I take pictures when they're in bloom, then make little signs with the software."  With The Compleat Botanica, even amateurs can feel like pros.

Did you know?

Q:  Do I have to press the save button every time I change something?

A:  No.  Changes to your collection are made automatically whenever you change to a new view and whenever you select a different item in the list.  If you've inadvertently made a change, you can revert back to the original value by pressing the Undo button.  See the full story.

Tips . . .

  Here's a step-by-step procedure for creating a new filter.

A:  Filters allow you to see a partial listing of the specimen in your collection. This is useful when you have a large collection; but even if you have a small collection filters are still useful for choosing which columns to show in the list.

Here's a step-by-step procedure for creating a new filter. In this example we'll create a filter to show all evergreen shrubs and trees suitable for planting in climates with annual average winter lows of -10 degrees Fahrenheit.  see the full story.
