Welcome
Our new website is now operational. It has taken many years of planning and development, with many gaps between the adding of images due to other commitments.
We will be adding more photos on a regular basis so keep checking for interesting and very usable images.

It is best viewed on a desktop Mac or PC (not fully functional on tablets or smart phones). Note - there is a magnification feature to view images close-up.

It is our aim to eventually provide a comprehensive library of stock botanical, garden and horticultural images that will become a total resource for nurserymen, garden writers and graphic artists requiring high quality images of this type.  Images from our site have been used for nursery plant labels and award-winning catalogues, in magazine articles and for commercial signage. A large number of images from this website have been used in a just published book on proteas -  PROTEA - A Guide to Cultivated Species & Varieties (Hawaii University Press).

We feel the big point of difference between our website and others is that we provide an accurate description of the image and buyers can rest assured that the naming is accurate.
We have also set out to provide high resolution images that have excellent detail to facilitate their usage in both horticultural and botanical applications; such as books and magazines, nursery catalogues and labels, signage, etc.

We welcome comments, suggestions and questions.
