Story behind the app
I was filming for the BBC Private Life of Plants when a friend visited my garden. She said. "You have a beautiful garden. How do you know which plants will grow in your garden so you get a beautiful and colourful garden throughout the year? She said "I have a tree but don’t know what will grow under it. I have a garage and I’d like to climb plants up it, but I don’t know what to plants. I have lots of books but it takes too long to look through them and they often don’t have the information I want".
That gave me the seed of an idea to make and quick and easy to use, interactive plant database. I wanted to to allow people of all levels of experience to find the right plants to suit every condition of a garden to produce colour and interest throughout the year. I could take all the photographs but I needed Authors to write about the plants. I wanted authors with mud under their fingernails who would write about the plants with descriptions rather than just basic information which you get on labels.
I then needed to find programmers to make the plant database come to life. Plant database has been growing ever since.
In this version we are introducing ability to add your own pictures to any plant! You can now personalise each one of the almost 5000 plants in our database. Additionally, you now get a 15 days trial to experience functionality that is otherwise available via in-app purchases.
