Persephone is a simple, web based plant records system to help you manage your collectionPersephone is a straightforward, yet flexible, plant records system, designed to meet the needs of a diverse range of collection holders. More than 200 National Plant Collections are currently recorded on the system, covering over 40,000 plants.

Using the Persephone database ensures the information held is secure, consistent and regularly backed up.  Records are accessible anywhere you can access the internet. Collection Holders who use other horticultural databases are invited to provide key collection data (.csv output) for inclusion on Persephone as we intend this to hold the records of all plants in our conservation schemes.

Record plants and pictures

As well as the standard information required for collections, you can customise the rest depending on your collection. Images, files and research can all be kept in one place.

Map your collection

With location accuracy to one metre, get an accurate picture of where plants are in your collection and never worry about lost labels again.

Produce reports and catalogues

Whether you want a quick printout to take round the garden, or produce an illustrated catalogue, Persephone allows quick and easy reports to be downloaded.

Persephone is easily accessible and from almost anywhere. This flexibility is really important for us working with multiple collections out in the field. It has made a major difference to me and my collections and has cut down on time, better spent on cultivating rare plants. <p></p> <p></p> Barry Clarke, Botanist at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens
