Landscape Plant Manager Version 1.xx

Thank you for obtaining a copy of the Landscape Plant Manager. I
hope the program will be of use to you in your work.

The Landscape Plant Manager is a plant selection program
developed for use by students in ornamental horticulture
curriculums, members of the landscape industry and homeowners.
Through various menus within the program, one can store and
retrieve information on plants used in the landscape. The main
feature of the Landscape Plant Manager is the ability to find
plants in a data file based on 1 to 24 different criteria
including such characteristics as form, height, spread and
hardiness zone. Depending on memory and disk storage capacity, a
Landscape Plant Manager data file can hold from 500 to 5000
different landscape plants.

This shareware software currently requires an IBM PC or true
compatible computer with a minimum of 128 kilobytes of memory and
one 360 kilobyte floppy disk drive. A memory capacity of 256
kilobytes or larger is preferred with a hard disk or 3.5" floppy.

If you do find the program useful, I hope you can make a donation
to the OHT/Biology development fund. Your donation will go
towards the purchase of sorely needed hardware and software for
use in teaching and training our students about computer
technology and use in horticulture. Some of the money will also
be used to further enhance the Landscape Plant Manager and to
develop other programs for use in the landscape industry.

To use the Landscape Plant Manager, please make a copy of the
original disk and use the copy. Please consult your Disk
Operating System manual on copy procedures. To avoid problems
and copyright infringement, the LPM distribution disk does not
have a copy of the disk operating system. The disk can be made
self booting by installing DOS on your copy disk before
transferring the LPM files to the copy disk.

To run the Landscape Plant Manager, the following files must be

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
