Hortipedia is a free information platform that specializes in all that concerns plants and gardening. The initiator of the project is Catherina Ruffing Countess Bernadotte af Wisborg, a german landscape designer who wanted to offer one single site on the internet that offers a comprehensive and in-depth guide to "all things green".
The idea behind it is that anyone can create and edit entries and thus share their special knowledge. Since Hortipedia is meant to be a specialized encyclopaedia rather then a general lexicon authors are very welcome to cover the various subjects in detail and include such things as instructions, tips and other pieces of advice.
A special feature of Hortipedia is the unique plant database which allows you to run a combined search by life-form, flower colour, soil conditions, and many more...
