[prMac.com] Victoria, Australia - Announcing that Wimmera Native Nursery, the developers of Native Plant Guide, has released an exciting, unique product for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The application is an instruction guide and teaching tool for users worldwide to learn about native Australian plant species. Information about selection, preparation, planting and maintenance of the plants is included in the extensive database, which can be searched or browsed. Native Plant Guide includes hundreds of beautiful plant photos.
Native Plant Guide is a unique app in North America. It is a valuable pocket reference on the selection and care of native Australian plants. Based on the industry respected book and desktop application, 'The Australian Native Plant Guide' by Dr. Peter Yau and Tim Langdon, the app has been designed to educate users worldwide.
"Our aim is to deliver information about Australia's wonderful flora to a global audience via a multitude of delivery platforms," says author Tim Langdon.
In Australia, the app is already being used by farming and mining consultants, teachers, nurseries and expos.
The Native Plant Guide app offers North Americans the opportunity to learn about more than four hundred Australian species, from a searchable database. Users can discover about plant selection, ground preparation and continued care of the plants. They can merely take in and appreciate the beauty of the data and photos or take advantage of the information to find plants they can use in their own gardens.
