I have been gardening for quite sometimeand I find your site wonderful for identification of some plants in my garden and some wild flowers in my locality. It also helps me for buying plants / seeds from nursery by showing the nursery person picture of the flowers / plants I want to buy. How about adding some gardening tips?
Thank you for starting such a beautiful site.

I have just sent you an email. But I will say it here. I was guiding a group in the Spiti Valley and over the Bara Bolander Pass down to Kafnu in July this year (2010). We saw meadows and meadows of wild flowers, in particular the red cinquefoil. Your website is absolute amazing - the pitctures are so good. Surrounded by 6000 metre peaks is was paradise.

This website is truly amazing. who ever lover nature, flowers loves the site.This site gives the complete details of the flowers and trees but also provide the address of the nurseries where you can get your favorable one's.
I have searched many web sites but you don't get the basic information what you need.this website gives you the most basic information of the flowers and trees.
I suggest them that they should start a new section on which they must tell us about how to care the most common flower plants that most peoples grow in their gardens and pots.

I visited the site continuously last 20 days. What a huge collection of photographs and information about plants. I have posses MSc degree in Botany and I have done doctorate in Forest Ecology. I have about 1000 plant photographs of chhattisgarh. Botanical names of most of the plants are identified but some plants not identified. Can I send to Photograph on your mail or web address for identification. Please Write to me.
Thanks & Regards

Hi. I came to know about your site from the article in TOI Crest. I have been photographing flowers since a long time now and would be very happy to share my pictures with this site. I must say you have done a great job here in creating this site. I have already bookmarked this site and would now be visiting it more often. Cheers!
Mumbai, Maharashtra India - Saturday, June 05, 2010 at 17:50:04 (IST)
Your website is becoming a habit! Almost every evening I explore a part of it that I haven't visited before. I found the section Flowers in Ancient Literature very interesting. Today, surprisingly, I was disappointed. I am looking for stories and legends relating to our trees, to share with children.Here in Bangalore, there is going to be a Tree Festival at the end of the month. As in many of our cities, trees are being felled in their thousands here, to make way for construction, and every possible connect with nature helps a little bit. I do have a suggestion. Please find contributors for stories and legends relating to trees as well. It would add one more interesting as well as useful section to an already excellent website.
