I've tried to add a couple of hostas today. I'm clicking on "add the plant" (or whatever it says) and nothing happens. Is there a problem?

"Nothing happens"? No error message or anything?

No. Nothing. I tried to enter Hosta 'Ovation' and clicked on it several times. There's a message not to enter quotes, but I hadn't done so. Also tried to enter the clausa var. normalis.

Are you entering "Hosta" into the Genus field? That's where it belongs.

I'll check. I'm not very good at getting those things right. Rolling my eyes.

ViolaAnn, you don't need to add the plant- it has already been added/entered.
Seach for the plant "hosta ovation" and you get these choices
http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Hosta+%27Ovation%...

Just click on the plant's name and the page opens
At the bottom of the page you get options to add a photo, data, comments, etc.

That's because Dave added it last night or early this morning. It wasn't there before.
