Plant-related projects[edit]

General creation of new plants[edit]

The wiki currently focuses purely on vegetables and their related troubles. However, it should be allowed to incorporate all ornamental plants, trees, shrubs, grasses, grains etc. OllieMartin 16:24, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

Categorisation of Squash[edit]

WikiGardener currently lists squash, marrow, courgette and pumpkin as 4 seperate vegetables in the Cucurbita category, but technically the last 3 are all types of squash. How should this be handled? Especially as courgette is a variety of squash, but there are particular varieties of courgette. At present Squash has a variety navbox which includes courgette and marrow, but not pumpkin.

Plant-variety related projects[edit]

General creation of new varieties[edit]

Categorisation of varieties[edit]

Categorisation of varieties is currently based on 2-6 general divisions (E.g. determinate and indeterminate for tomato), but as the wiki grows this will result in the Tomato Navbox (A list of all varieties placed at the bottom of any tomato variety page) becoming excessively long. How can this be managed? OllieMartin 16:24, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

Plant troubles related projects[edit]

Categorisation of plant troubles[edit]

Plant troubles are currently divided into these four categories: Adverse Conditions, Defiency, Disease & Pest. The issue with this system is that it doesn't logically incorporate such issues as over-feeding, it's technically and adverse condition, but deficiencies have their own section. Should adverse conditions incorporate deficiencies AND excesses, should a 5th category be made, or should a new description for deficiencies be decided upon? OllieMartin 16:24, August 5, 2010 (UTC)

Resolved. All deficiencies have now been merged into the Adverse conditions category. OllieMartin 12:09, August 11, 2010 (UTC)

Soil conditioners[edit]

This section of the wiki currently includes manures, compost, and various fertilisers. I feel it should be put into a category of "Gardening equipment" or words to that effect, and then built into a new wiki section including anything from spades and wheelbarrows to sheds and greenhouses.
