How did Green Planet get started?
We are a young couple with a passion for plants and nature.
Both of us are IT professionals with no botanical training, but our love and interest
in plants has driven us to want to share our passion with others.
to create Green Planet was driven by what we found to be a complete lack of searchable information on the web. Many website have a wealth of information, but we found it to be completely lacking in searchability. If you don't know the name of a plant you are cpmpletely reliant on sifting through search engines to identify a plant.
