Plant Genie

By Crocus

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Have you ever stood in your garden and thought: ‘I wonder what I could grow under that tree’, or ‘on that wall’.
Help is at hand. Or to be precise: in the palm of your hand.
Plant Genie is an app that is able to identify what plants will grow best in any spot in your garden.
It works by mapping your precise position and correlating it with your soil type (as identified by the National Soil Resources Institute).
It also knows which way you are facing (North, South, east or West). All you have to do is tell it whether you have a shady or sunny position.
Then, with one touch, it will allow you to choose from thousands of lovely plants from Crocus.
Narrow your selection by type of plant (climber/shrub) or colour and then buy what you want.
And make all your garden dreams come true.

Plant Genie
A touch of garden magic from Crocus

What's New in Version 1.2

Customer Reviews

Great app

Works well, just one suggestion... Can you make it into a universal app so that it uses the capabilities of the iPad too?

How about using the built in cameras to identify plants too - maybe a far stretch but I'm sure there's some pattern matching libraries out there?!

Awful app

Love the service and the paper catalogue/ web site. But the app is awful and feels cheap. No matter what criteria you "Start" with, the results always comes up with "No Records Available". There is no way to Do simplest of tasks like search for special offers or even browse the entire catalogue. Shame, as it seems like a lost opportunity

Average app

This app has a good layout and database however it becomes irrelevant as it takes no notice of your requirements! If I tell it that its a Shaded position I don't expect to be shown plants that require full sun as this defeats the object of the app!!!
