Hello,

I am a student at Saint-√Čtienne university (France) in computer engineering.
In the context of a student project, I need to build a software for landscape and garden management.

I am interested in your database because it gives important informations for me, that we cannot find anywhere.

So I wonder if I can download either a dump of your database, or if you allow me create a bot to automatically gather the database's informations by scraping your website.

Thank you very much.


Sincerely, Balto

Hi Balto,

Our database is not available for this kind of use, and is only accessible through our website at garden.org. There are other databases online that provide API access. Good luck in your project!

Hi Dave,

First of all, thanks for your reply.
I wasn't really hoping for a database dump (it would be too perfect). But still, cannot we copy some of the texts from your website, to use these informations offline?

Thanks you.


Sincerely, Balto
