Editors' review

Though you're only allowed to view a limited number of plants and flowers, Plantasia Home Edition is one of the more reliable and easy-to-use database applications that we've seen. The program sports a well-designed, multipaneled interface that is simple to operate. Plant categories are organized into a simple tree-view list on the left side of the screen. The right side houses tons of information such as species, growth habits, climate and nutrition, plant cycle, suitable soil conditions, and much more.

The program comes preloaded with plant information, and you can add your own or edit existing information. We like the dialog boxes that contain entries to fill entry fields (flower shape, fragrance, fruit type, and so on). Moreover, you can upload images, import/export plant fact sheets in DOC format, and build projects quickly by dragging and dropping plant entries into your project folder. Print tools are also available.

Our only complaint is that users can only view the first 10 plants of each category during the trial; nonetheless, you'll still find loads of information. With that said, Plantasia Home Edition makes it easy for any gardening enthusiast to access and manage information on plants and flowers.

    "Great product, ability to edit and create new plants is perfect"

    January 20, 2007   |   By JamesMNorton

    Version: Plantasia Home Edition 2007

    Pros

    I really like this product for its clean layout - the tabs approach makes it one of the cleanest interfaces I've seen for a while. Editing plant records and creating new records/adding digital photos is very intuitive - I quickly made a project showing nearly all the plants in our back yard in minutes. You can then email the records (with photos) to friends so they can view also if they have the software installed. Great!
