BBC Plant Finder
by: Martyn Howard • 29
This app is a frontend for the BBC`s Plant Finder website.
It allows you to search the BBC`s extensive plant database and display the results in a simple, user-friendly interface.
VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ:
The BBC have closed down the plant finder website and switched to the RHS plant database.
Unfortunately, this means the app will not find any plants at the moment.
Sorry, but this was completely out of my control.
PLEASE DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE APP AS IT WILL NOT WORK.
UPDATE: Due to Legal/copyright concerns I can not update the app to use the RHS database, and thus the app is now retired and no more development will take place.
If it is still installed on your device, please uninstall it as it will not function anymore.
Many thanks to everyone who used the app and to those who left nice comments.
Simple Search to quickly find a plant by name.
Advanced Search to choose plant characteristics from different catagories and narrow down your search to a list of relevent plants.
This is a powerful tool that finds plants based on the criteria you specify.
The catagories are:
Secondary plant type
Flowering period from
Flowering period to
After a search is performed a list of plants will be displayed, selecting a plant opens its information screen that contains a picture,description and growing information relevent to that plant.
I have no affiliation with the BBC and this is an unofficial app. All the plant data displayed in this app is the copyright of the BBC and not the app developer.
This app merely presents the BBC Plant Finder website in a more convienient format for mobile devices.
