If you are an avid gardener, you will understand how tiresome it is to keep a tab on the various variety of plants in your garden.

To make identification of plants easier, a lot of gardeners use plant tags.

The problem with them is that you’ll have to crawl your way into the mud to find and read the tag. The thought of doing this for every plant is quite a put off.

To access this information,all one needs to do is scan the QR Code using a QR Code scanning app.

“Gardeners can keep much better records about their plants including journal notes and pictures. No more tattered notebooks and file folders. And the gardener can access the data from the house or out in the garden. The interactive, scannable plant tags can be scanned by the gardener or visitors with a simple QR code scanner on a smartphone or tablet.” –Nancy Duffy, Owner, Muddy Boots Plant Tags

The app has different subscription packages depending on the number of plants a gardener wants to record.

Gardeners with up to 25 plants and 50 photos can download the app for free. The paid subscription will cost gardeners approximately $4.95 per month, or $49.95 per year. This will allow them to upload close to 5,000 photos and record 500 plants.
