Plant Finder with full details of over 13,300 UK plants. Find plants featured on TV shows, and find who sells a plant locally. Search for plants to suit any criteria or planting location. Keep a list of Favourite plants and those in your garden. The app is the plant expert in your pocket.

"Invaluable at the nursery or garden centre; when I see a plant that I like I can look at whether it will suit my garden BEFORE I buy it!!!" Mrs Davids

"I have been using and recommending the Joy of Plants app to my students as I really think it is an excellent app with extensive information and works so well on my iPad to share information..." Tracy Clements, Lecturer in Horticulture, Bridgwater College

"We’re the biggest Garden Centre in the South of England and we’re delighted to be listed as a ‘Seller’ in the Joy of Plants app. We think the quality of their plant data and the user-friendliness of their design is second to none. It's the best Plant Finder out there!" Michael Ainley, Longacres Garden Centre, Surrey

"As a garden designer, it is important to know my plants. I love the 'Joy of Plants' iPhone app - I can access all this plant information on the move, and have 'favourites' as well as keeping a list of plants in the 'my garden' section. I think that this app is an absolute must have for anyone who has an interest in plants, and for the cost of a sandwich, you really cannot go wrong."

"Having the Joy of Plants Plant Finder on my phone is brilliant. It’s really easy to use and has the same plant info as we have on our website which is great.” Andrea Burlingham, Hare Hatch Sheeplands Garden Centre, Berkshire

Not working on ios 14 on ipad air4

I have used this for many years but it just crashes when trying to use on my new ipad air 4th generation ios 14.6. It works fine on my iphone 7 ios 14.6. I hope you will sort this out soon.

Very useful

This is a really useful app to be able to search and identify so many plants. I really like the 'my garden' facility, where you can create a database of what plants you have. But there are occasions when the plant I have got from a nursery is not listed in JoP so it would be really good if I could add it to my database. At present, I can only add the nearest thing I can find in the JoP listing. Also, it would be useful to have a facility to add your own personal notes to the 'my garden' facility, so one can keep a personal record. Apart from these minor frustrations, this is the best plant app I've seen.


No longer opening on iPad

This used to be my ‘Go to’ plant finder app for information, even ahead of the RHS site. I’ve recommended it to numerous people.
Now it just crashes before it has even opened properly. Frustrating to say the least. Have the developers given up on it?
It’s certainly not worth getting if you have an up to date ipad.
