We aim to produce garden software that is simple, efficient and yet highly flexible. The Plant Base application is suitable for amateur gardeners, garden designers, landscape professionals, students or in fact anyone with an interest in growing or observing plants.

It was developed in the UK and the supplied plant data tends to reflect that, but is not limited to any region or type of plant. We have users located worldwide.

An equivalent Android edition of Plant Base that has the same underlying database, provides the option of mobile use on smartphones and tablets.

The plant data content is also available for online searching, either here on this website or via the small Android viewer app - though read access only and with reduced size pictures.

When time allows we sometimes undertake other projects, for example our highly popular Extra Keys Windows desktop tool and also occasional web authoring work.
