Even though I joined earlier this year, I haven't had time to be on here very often.. hopefully that'll change. Where is the database & how do you get to it?

Haven't been here in quite awhile, but I see some pics I posted earlier to Cubits have been moved to the database. I added some more today,but I'd like to see photos of the hosts I don't have too; so PLEASE post your photos.

Click on 'plants' then browse by genus' then select 'H' for hosta. Scroll all the way down to Hostas and click it, they are at the top of page 14. When I registered in September it was on page 5, wow, has it grown!

I was going thru my photos, and [i'm only on A ] but was going to add Adrian's Glory, and it's not in the database, so i tried to enter it, and i'm getting an error that says,

Important: Don't add quotes around the names. The system will add those automatically when appropriate.


but there are not quotes.

how do i add new cultivars / plants to the database?

I was getting the same message and asked Dave, but I was doing something wrong. Dave asked, "Are you entering "Hosta" into the Genus field? That's where it belongs." Sure enough, I wasn't. Once I did that it worked perfectly.

Terese it's talking about the little ditos around the name. Line 'Adrian's Glory', just put Adrian's Glory. I really love that hosta and I would like to buy one in the spring. Where did you get yours? Lovey dubby

I didnt put the ditos around it, even took out the " ' " by the s...

i'll check the genus thing... do not think I did. I attempted to look at an example, and thought i was doing it right.

so many photos.. so little time.

Keep Trying Terese! I know you will get it. Thumbs up Below is a copy and paste of some advise dave gave me, and I had no problem after that. Hope this helps. I tip my hat to you.

from dave

Could you resubmit the new plant proposal? You can entered in "Hudson Bay" as the common name, but the common name should read "Hosta" instead.

All together, the fields should be:

Common name: Hosta
Genus: Hosta
Species: (leave blank)
Cultivar: Hudson Bay

Most of my photos show hosta in groups. I need to take individual pictures of each this spring.

Let me know if you need any help, I tip my hat to you.
I added 'Adrian's Glory' I didn't add the data yet, but I am dying to see your pictures. Lovey dubby I have been wanting one of these but was afraid It would be too similar to ' Paul's Glory'. Blinking

My Blue Angel is (I'm guessing) 8 years old. I planted in on a small mound of enriched soil with alfalfa meal. (Used for Horses). It has a growth hormone in it. It is better to get in as rabbit manure but go with what you have. Only worried about water the 1st. year planted.
