The Web app contains all 8,500+ plants available in the website Plant Finder, searchable by UK and USDA Hardiness zone. The iPhone app contains over 7,500 plants.
* Find plants and trees that will look good and thrive in your garden. Choose the plant colour, size and shape, select the soil, light and moisture settings for the planting site, tap Search and you’ll get a list of plants to match your needs. Add as many or as few search criteria as you like.
* Use the My Garden view to manage the plants you grow in your garden. Keep track of the types of plants you are growing and the colours they will add to your garden. See which plants add interest in each season.
* Use the Favourites view to compile a plant shopping list, or a list of plants you are interested in. Note: you don’t buy plants online from within the app – the app is to help you identify plants to meet your needs.
All this and more is yours in the app!
The Joy of Plants web app is a web app that runs in the Internet browser of your phone.
The app works best on Android phones and Blackberry phones with screen resolution of more than 480 x 480. The app comes with a free 7 day trial, so you can try it on your phone before you buy!
We do not recommend Windows Phones for use with the app at the current time. The Internet Browser on Windows Phones (all versions) does not display certain features of the Joy of Plants web app HTML pages correctly and this affects the app's usability. We are working on further changes for Windows Phones and we'll add these to a later version of the app.
