Our aim is 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.
