About this app

Will this plant grow in my yard? How do I care for each of my plants? I follow the guidance on the printed plant tags but seem to struggle - what am I doing wrong? What are appropriate companion plants to supplement my landscaping that are appropriate for my climate and location? What is this plant and where can I get one? These and many other gardening challenges are what compelled us to create PlantTAGG.

PlantTAGG is the smartest mobile gardening companion available. Our plant content is comprised of thousands of plant species and cultivars which we licensed from leading horticulture universities. Each profile is then hand crafted and curated by Master Gardeners to ensure accuracy, detail and credibility. PlantTAGG is uniquely able to localize suggested care tasks and tips specific for your geographic location using NOAA data, data science and 1500 care rules. Our algorithms compute a season map for your specific yard based on first/last average freeze dates, extreme heat, freeze and average temperatures, sunlight, precipitation and other local climatic data.

At a garden center and want to make a good plant selection decision for your yard's unique micro-climates? PlantTAGG's proprietary 'Thrive Scorecard' can predict the success you will have with a plant based on your exact location, sunlight, moisture and climate.

On a neighborhood walk, in a community garden, on a nature hike and want to know what a plant is? PlantTAGG's PlantID is best in class. Once you have identified a plant, add it to your ‘Favorites’ for later research and purchase.

Want to know when and how to fertilize, prune and deal with pests and disease for each unique plant? PlantTAGG’s tasks and tips are crafted and curated by Master Gardeners and tailored for your specific yard location. As you use PlantTAGG's care tasks the system gets smarter. Want to add a custom scheduled care task for a specific plant - no problem.

Having plant care challenges? If you are affiliated with a PlantTAGG garden center partner you will be able to 'Ask an Expert' by sending pictures and quickly receiving expert guidance.

Want help with your landscaping project? PlantTAGG's landscape design styles and material calculators will help you visualize and achieve success.

Stop the guesswork – put PlantTAGG to work as your virtual Master Gardener.

The PlantTAGG app is fun and easy to use! I needed an app that would guide me and give me reminders for all the various care different plants in my garden need at different times of the year. This app does that. The Thrive scorecard is my favorite feature, rewarding you with green happy faces if you give your plants the right light and water conditions. The app team is amazingly responsive, open to feedback and eager to add plants to their already extensive database.

It sounds good from the description. Although they failed to mention that it will only work in the United States, Canada and Costa Rica. Unfortunately it's of no use for gardens (and users) anywhere else in the world.

We are sorry that PlantTAGG is not yet available in your country. We are growing our list of plant and expanding into new countries as we publish more geographically specific plant profiles. That said, the Google Play store is not supposed to present apps to people unless their country of origin is active in the published app profile.
