Shoot founder Nicola Gammon said: "Hitting 20 000 plant entries is a huge milestone for Shoot. We are very proud that the plants we add to our database are requested by members and added by experts. Shoot is all about offering our members personalised, relevant plant care advice that is credible but also friendly and accessible. The Shoot plant database is a vital part of that offer."
Every entry features plant descriptions, care advice, planting condition recommendations for every entry.
Gladiola ‘Black Velvet’ was the 20 000th plant to feature on the website’s plant database and had been nominated by one of Shoot amateur members. The request was forwarded to Shoot’s team of horticulturalists, who researched and compiled the plant information.
