Good resource but could be much better!

Actually I would give this three stars except that you can't turn the sound effects off and they're really annoying! The reason that this product seems to get 5 stars or 1 star on the reviews is to do with how you want to access the material- which does seem to be pretty comprehensive- so it deserves better than 1 star. The database only lets you search in very specific ways - fine if you want use the programme to suggest planting schemes and varieties but not if you want to use it, say, you identify a plant as you might use a field guide or paper encyclopedia - I contacted the author through the website who was very nice about it all but not able to help (search me I'm not the programmer!) I think he should fire his programmer and get someone to install a preferences menu so you can turn the **** sounds off and a browser so you can search through the images in whatever way you need to !!!
