Botanix - A Gardener's Journal of KPR Gardeners Club Gardeners Club
Botanix is the only worldwide gardener's journal. The first edition was published in Slovakia in spring 2000. Later it was available only on the internet. Since summer 2008 Botanix was published in other languages online on our website as well!
The increasing amount of information is specifically meant for Slovak gardeners; however it can be used in most of the European countries. With some limitations this information can also be used in other countries. For example: Many frost tolerant plants can not be grown in tropical areas, since the cold season is essential for good health of these plants. Tropical plants for instance should be grown in greenhouses or indoors in areas where frost is found.
If Botanix is not available in your language or does not have articles suitable for your country's climate, feel free to start to write articles to us on the subject of the plants, growing of plants etc. or translate current articles in your mother tongue.
At the moment Botanix is available in the following languages:
The following language mutations are identical at the moment, but in near future they will not be identical anymore. Thus if you can speak more than one language, read more editions in different languages!
KPR (an abbreciation from Slovak name "Klub pestovateľov rastlín", in English literally meaning "The Club of Plants Growers") is an international gardener's organization with the following most important goals:
- To join together gardeners around the world from all fields and interests
- To create a large database of seeds and plants (Seeds and Plants Bank of KPR) in order to put together a reliable and comprehensive source of information on as many plants as possible for gardeners around the globe
- To provide a meeting place for gardeners around the world where they will be able to share gardening experiences with each other
The KPR was officially established in Slovakia in Europe in 2000; however its origins goes back to 1998.
Now you can enjoy all the benefits of membership as well - and it does not matter who you are or what language you speak. Read more here!
We welcome anyone from anywhere around the world who loves plants. Join us now!
Of course, one disadvantage still exists: you won’t be able to read our club journal Botanix, unless you understand the languages in which it’s available. On the other hand, why not start your own journal in your own language? Get together with other gardeners, speaking the same language, and start writing or collecting interesting articles about gardening, plants, etc. and then start with your own Botanix in your own language!
Also remember that the growing information specifically meant for Slovak gardeners can not always be used in tropical areas and vice versa, thus such a local-language adaptation of Botanix would be desirable.
What are you waiting for? It is easy! You can start right now!
