UK flora: List of cultivated plant families

Welcome to the main entry page. The purpose of this part of the site is to provide information about the cultivated plants of Britain.

At this stage there are only a handful of species, almost all of which are also native species, just to show how the concept works.

The purpose of the second column, which is headed 'Content', is to indicate in a simple way whether there is any content for that particular family. Specifically, it indicates whether the family description has been done, whether there is a sample image for the family and counts the number of species for which we have records in our database.

See here for a list of recently updated cultivated species.
