PlantFile’s Author

Peter Kirkland is a professional horticulturist with over 30 years experience in all facets of the industry. In response to consumer demand for a quality horticultural database, Peter began developing PlantFile as a resource for professional landscapers, horticulture students and home gardeners.


From its initial introduction into the industry in 2000, PlantFile has grown to a practical, user-friendly database, with information and images of over 3,600 plant species and 9,000 cultivars. PlantFile has been taken up enthusiastically by students, professionals and state & local government agencies. PlantFile is now available as a CD-ROM, online, and as an iPhone or Android app.

  •  A big thank you to all the PlantFile users who have given constant support and feedback which has been invaluable in making PlantFile into the ultimate guide to plants.
