How do I put a plant on my list, if I just know its general name e.g. buddleja?

Hi Judy,

Great timing. We are adding 'general' plants without a specific variety name now and have already added many popular ones. We don't yet have a general entry buddleja. Please request we add it using our plant request form . This will then be picked up by our horticultural team who will add it for you.

I hope you are enjoying the site?

Kind regards
Nicola from Shoot

p.s. to find a sample of a 'generic' plant look in our Genus lists. e.g. lavender here. It is hightlighted in a darker background colour

Hi Judy, would it be easier we created a special list of just these 'generic' plants' on its own? Thanks again Nicola

Hi Nicola - I think the generic plant is best in amongst the others. I had thought of this before - especially when you inherit a garden, the generic is enough for care and disease details - eg forsythia, and even rose. Specifics are more interest to me when I am getting new things!

Thanks Carol.

That is really good feedback to get. It seems members want both - generic plants - and the specific variety if they know the full name.

I was wondering about listing in both places. In with the others and in a list on their own. Might be useful?

Thanks for the feedback, Nicola
