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

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.

The plant database is also available online in simplified and reduced form for free searching by web browser.

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