The Weatherstaff PlantingPlanner is designed and produced by Topdisk Ltd, a software company based in Gloucestershire, UK.
We are a husband and wife team, with previous careers in IT and teaching respectively and a shared perfectionist streak! Moving, fifteen years ago, to a new house in the country with a blank canvas for a garden provided the impetus for a change of direction and the development of the Weatherstaff PlantingPlanner.
Planning our very first border threw up a plethora of choices and hours of agonising decision-making. What we needed was a computer program to handle all those decisions for us. A program which would have held our hands through our first forays into the world of gardening and yet provide the plant choices and exciting combinations that, as burgeoning keen plants-people, we were beginning to appreciate. A program with an obsessional attention to detail and a comprehensive, hand-holding Help system. Above all, we wanted to create something which reflected the intelligent ‘randomness’ of a knowledgeable garden designer.
And so the Weatherstaff PlantingPlanner was born. We wish you many hours of fun in your own garden.
