Garden Terms is designed to help gardeners share definitions
(and pictures) of gardening tools, techniques, pesky critters, and
other gardening terminology. Botanary is a botanical dictionary that
contains scientific plant names (family, genus, species), their etymology
(what the name means) and pronunciation assistance. Back to the top
Most of the online lists of gardening terminology are static:
they were written by one "expert", and never added to or edited
since. In comparison with most of these lists, Garden Terms is
quite large: it contains more than 2,300 terms and their
definitions; when combined with the botanical information found in
Botanary, the number of entries exceeds 15,000.
Most importantly, Garden Terms is written for and by gardeners and
remains an ongoing, ever-changing and growing repository of
information. We welcome new terms, new definitions and images
from any registered user!
Once you've located the entry for the proper term, click on "add a definition". Enter
your description or comment, then click on the "browse" button. This will
open up a new window displaying your hard drive. Locate your image you
wish to upload, then press "Preview". If you're happy with the
entry, press "Submit". It will be automatically uploaded and available
for all readers to access. Back to the top
