So far so good. Very fast, accurate and polite responses! Not knowing so many plants in my garden was irritating. This app has scratched a big itch! Having a single database of everything in my garden is a big bonus! One small piece of feedback.. it would be really useful to add your own notes to the flowers listed in your garden section.

A great app!


I love this app. It has been so useful in enabling me to identify plants. One one occasion the answer came back within ten minutes. On another it took a day or so because they were very busy, but I don't know how else I would have identified the specimens.

Good idea, poor execution


See a plant in your garden, take s photo and ask an "expert" to identify it - simple? No! You have to sign up, open an account with a password and your email, etc, etc, etc. Then you can do it, right? Not yet! You have to *buy credits! Are you kidding?
It said that when I started out it would let me have some credits "for free", but it didn't. The expert never answered my query, after all that. What a ridiculously stupid app. Bad show all round.
