Garden Explorer Website Brings the Garden to You Online

Use Garden Explorer on your smart phone in the Garden to help you find and identify plants.

With the newly introduced Garden Explorer website, you can explore the Garden in depth — on-site or virtually from anywhere in the world! Using a web browser on a PC, tablet computer or smartphone, a virtual visitor can access:
• Satellite maps of the property
• A database of detailed information about our plants and collections
• Searches for plants via common and scientific name
• Use the Tours function to plan a tour of the Garden, or take a virtual tour from home.
Visitors can pinpoint their location on the map, making it easier to navigate the Garden. In the future, users will be able to search for Garden features, such as memorial benches and trees. They also will be able to participate in self-guided Garden tours (even virtually) that highlight plants of seasonal and thematic interest.
Try it yourself! Please share this news so others can enjoy Garden Explorer, too!
This software enhancement is made possible through a grant from the Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust.
