The Plant List is a working list of all known plant species. It aims to be comprehensive for species of Vascular plant (flowering plants, conifers, ferns and their allies) and of Bryophytes (mosses and liverworts).

Collaboration between the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and Missouri Botanical Garden enabled the creation of The Plant List by combining multiple checklist data sets held by these institutions and other collaborators.

Version 1.1 (September 2013) replaces Version 1.0 which remains accessible here. Version 1.1 includes new data sets, updated versions of the original data sets and improved algorithms to resolve logical conflicts between those data sets. The differences between versions are summarised here.

The Plant List provides the Accepted Latin name for most species, with links to all Synonyms by which that species has been known. Around 20% of names are unresolved indicating that the data sources included provided no evidence or view as to whether the name should be treated as accepted or not, or there were conflicting opinions that could not be readily resolved.

The Plant List is not perfect and represents work in progress. Our aims remain to produce a ‘best effort’ list, to demonstrate progress and to stimulate further work. Important limitations are summarised here.

GROW! Marketing and Public Relations Tips

Millennials are the buzz word of the decade. Everyone wants them, no one clearly knows how to get them. But we’re not here to talk about Millennials. There’s a new generation to obsess over.

Generation Z.

We’ve learned there are similarities and differences between Gen Z and Millennials, such as they both prioritize individuality and uniqueness, and are both resistant to traditional labels. But there are differences as well.

The 2015 Census Bureau data showed 51% of those under 15-years-old (Gen Z) are white, and children under five are 51% minority. This generation is not only more diverse than Millennials; Gen Z will mark the first time that the minority will become the majority.

Continue reading to dive deeper into this next generation and learn a few tricks to get them in the garden.

First, what exactly is the definition of Gen Z? The ranges are all over the place, but we extrapolated from
The U.S. Census Bureau and other marketing agencies that Millennials were born between the years 1982-2000, making Gen Z: 2001-2019. Why?

  1. To allow for an approximately equal distribution of years per generation
  2. To account for the major cultural shifts such as wars, political strife or 9/11

Next, let’s talk about how to reach them.

Customization

Customization is in high demand, with interest in tailored products from both Gen Z & Millennials. 85
percent of 13-34-year-olds like when brands offer the option to personalize products and services to fit their needs. While affordability is still a top influence, there is willingness to pay a bit more for personalization.

This trend is currently present in the food, fashion and design industries. Companies like Nike and Converse allow people to create customized sneakers with different colors and materials.

Brands in the garden industry should take note, as Gen Z and Millennials demand customization in everything they do.

How can your garden brand do this?

  1. Allow consumers to create customized Do-It-Yourself kits
  2. Host DIY workshops in store or virtually online
  3. Carry as many colors, patterns and design variations of a product as you can
  4. Partner with apartment complexes to create active community gardens
  5. Design interactive, shareable social media experiences

Think Gen Z isn’t your target market? Well considering that 93 percent of Millennial parents want options to personalize products and services to fit their needs, your customized options can attract multiple generations.

Now more than ever, people value their individualism and freedom of choice. They don’t want to fit in, they want to stand out. The more choices garden brands offer, the more likely all generations are to find something they love.

Mental Breaks

Gen Z is constantly bombarded with ads, content and choices. They experience FOMO, YOLO and are stressed AF. They have complained about being more over-worked and stressed than their older peers.

Therefore, mindfulness, mental health, and escaping stress are increasingly becoming a focus for young consumers who want to improve their wellbeing. In fact, 94 percent of Gen Z agree taking care of your mental health is just as important as taking care of your physical health.

Integrate their desire to escape stress with your content or products.

  1. Offer in-store exercise classes such as yoga or Tai-Chi
  2. Create cleansing recipes from organic fruits and vegetables
  3. Promote meditation in the garden and offer regular mindfulness exercises
  4. Host a Facebook Live from your garden to promote the importance of being present and the health benefits of the sounds of nature

These are just a few ways you can start to nurture Gen Z. But don’t be fooled, these are challenges that effect every generation and if you commit to adding just one to your business, you’ll see people of all ages taking notice. They just may tell you in different ways.
