Re: Selfseed?

In forum: Campanula glomerata 'Alba'

Hi, Adele,
It's all a matter of preference but it is recommended to shear back after flowering so you get a second flush of flowering rather than seed production. Also, Campanula glomerata 'Alba' , when grown in ideal conditions, can self-seed freely, becoming rather weedy and invasive (again, this is a matter of opinion amongst gardeners).

Sort order for plants in database?

Question from Kevin Pfeiffer

In forum: Polygonum baldschuanicum

I've not been able to figure out the sort order for the results when I look up a plant in the database. Is there one? Not having things in some sort of alphabetical order (common name, botanic name, or something) makes it much more difficult to find things -- one doesn't know whether to stop after page one or keep looking.. through all 15 pages (in some cases).

For example, searching for 'campanula', I get (in this order):
White clustered bellflower (Campanula glomerata 'Alba')
Adriatic bellflower 'Dickson's Gold' (Campanula garganica 'Dickson's Gold' )
Tussock bellflower 'White Clips' (Campanula carpatica f. alba 'Weisse Clips')

Lest you begin to think that these are reverse sorted by botanical name, the next entry is:
Wall bellflower (Campanula portenschlagiana)

Now, let's say I want to know whether there is another C. carpatica (I'm looking for one with blue flowers) -- I'd have to scan through all six pages, wouldn't I? (Multiple search terms don't seem to work.)
