The Plant Cultures website is a rich resource for education and interpretation in gardens, museums and community centres,
and at events such as melas. Its materials - text, activity sheets, stories and images - are freely available for use in signs, information sheets,
activity sheets and similar materials.
Potential uses include:
- Creating a plant trail with South Asian plants
- Offering children's activities using Asian plant materials
- Arranging an event or activities linked to an Asian festival
- Promoting a garden at a mela or community event
- Developing a community project based around art or oral history.
Images on the website are of sufficient quality to allow for office printing on inkjets and some colour laser printers. Please experiment - if you need high-resolution images, let us know.
Permissions and restrictions
Use of website materials is permitted without charge
for non-commercial activities at educational establishments, including botanical gardens, heritage
centres and museums.The primary restrictions are on use in publicly visible webpages, in publications such as books,
and for commercial use. Further details are given on the copyright page.
Where design considerations allow, we ask that photographs be credited to the photographer (where stated); if no photographer is credited in the
website's Picture Library, then the source institution (e.g. Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew) should be credited.
Where possible, we would appreciate prominent use of the Plant Cultures logo and web address (www.plantcultures.org.uk).
The Plant Cultures logo is available for download in different formats:
Website text can be used direct from the site, or re-written as wished. However, contributed stories should be used in a format that respects
their integrity. Stories can be shortened but not paraphrased, and should be credited to the contributor.
For queries, advice, or high-resolution images, please contact us through the contact form.
If you have found the website useful, we'd love to hear from you.
Signs suitable for printing at A4 or A3 size are available for 24 species. They are in Microsoft Powerpoint format and can be downloaded or opened individually, or
are available as a large zip file (6.3 MB): plantsigns.zip
Signs may be modified as wished, but we would suggest keeping the Plant Cultures name and web address, as this allows visitors to find further information on the plant.
If you have difficulty in working with Powerpoint slides, please ask us about other formats.
