Several institutions around the world digitise historic garden literature and make it available via the internet free of charge which is advantageous to both garden scholars and enthusiasts. Easy as it may be to locate a publication via the internet it is still difficult to get an overview. Books related to garden topics represent a small fraction only of the worldwide wealth of literature. As yet no web portal allows for a topic or language related search. Surprisingly, many digitised books are not listed according to standard. This collection of links for digitised garden literature includes full view garden literature only with some exceptions from botany, architecture, literature, and sylviculture, all scanned from the orginal. OCR texts are excluded.
