Why choose Persephone for your records?

Simple to use, the Persephone plant records system is powerful and flexible enough to deal with the complex and varied needs of those caring for plant collections. Developed by the charity Plant Heritage to enable affordable access to good plant recording software, this system is already used by hundreds of National Plant Collections®. With over 10 years experience developing the software to record a wide range of collections, Plant Heritage is pleased to now be able to make Persephone available for wider use. It is backed up by a friendly and comprehensive support system.

Persephone is easily accessible and the flexibility is really important for us working with multiple collections out in the field. It has made a major difference to me and my collections and has cut down on time, better spent on cultivating rare plants.”

Barry Clarke, botanist and plant records officer, Sir Harold Hillier Gardens

I never thought I would describe software as beautiful, but Persephone is beautiful.”
