WeatherBirds is a unique app that helps you with your gardening problem - caring adequately for your plants according to the weather.
It provides you with up-to-date care instructions to care for the different types of plants that you have, in accordance to the daily weather. It also allows you to learn about your plant as well as providing you with the platform to ask questions you may have about gardening to experts. All of which will help you become an ace gardener before you can say WeatherBirds!
As we know the weather can sometimes be unpredictable which means we sometimes cannot do the best for our plants. Unfortunately this can lead to you committing 'plantslaughter' and this can be devastating after putting all that time and effort into caring for the plant. With WeatherBirds you get accurate care instructions that help you care for your plant in various weather conditions. You plan ahead for the following day because we provide you with instructions for today but also tomorrow.
We also tell you what plants are in season so you know what to grow, and as gardeners we know that you not only grow plants but you want to learn about them and this is why we provide you with additional information in order for you to do so.
As individuals we all like to personalise things that are ours therefore with WeatherBirds you can add your own image for your plant, so you can call that plant your own. It's not just a sunflower it's YOUR sunflower.
Using this app should lead to you becoming the ideal gardener that you wish to be!
