You can now buy Ornamental Grasses and Phormium at the website.
The site uses Class::DBI to model the data and provide object-relational persistance, searching, etc, with a Maypole Backend and a lightweight mod_perl and Template Toolkit front end.
There is more detail in the powered-by-perl entry I added.
Some important notes are Redhat 9 is *so* unsuitable for server-usage, much of the delay was working around bugs in its perl and apache. I also had to redesign the website and how the stock was represented in the system.. never have your wife as project manager and client for a project like this.
Also the quality of image you get from a decent Kodak digital camera compared to a 3 year old bargain basement fuji are incredible. I threw away a hundred photo's I took with the old camera and redid everything with the new one and the results are incredible.
