Plant Recommendations Backed by Science Without Bias

The number one question asked of garden centers and experienced gardeners is “can you recommend plants for my yard”. This is not an easy question to answer. A thoughtful response must consider many factors such as the climatic conditions of the planting location, sunlight, moisture and soil, but also the style and desired features of the plant. Our ‘Suggest a Plant’ feature uses cutting edge data science in response to your input to recommend plants that will best meet your needs.

The Right Plants for the Right Conditions

Using PlantTAGG’s proprietary Thrive Scorecard® technology, PlantTAGG predicts the growing success of every plant in your Yard. It’s optimized for each of your configured Zones based on geography, microclimate, and the needs of each individual plant.

Garden with Confidence

Rest assured you have the most accurate and precise guidance for your exact location and plants. PlantTAGG uses cutting-edge data science and world-class plant content from the USDA, Texas A&M, North Carolina State, NOAA, certified Master Gardeners and our dedicated team of horticulture experts. Add custom recurring tasks with reminders to ensure your gardening success. The more you use PlantTAGG the smarter it gets as it learns how you garden.

 Location, Location, Location

Once you establish your Yard, PlantTAGG automatically builds a custom season map for your precise location. Location is the most important factor in gardening success, especially microclimates such as sunlight, moisture, soil, and pH. Don’t forget your houseplants and outside containers!

Unlimited Zones and Plants
Instantly access PlantTAGG’s extensive plant library with the most comprehensive plant profiles available – all hand crafted by our team of Master Gardener ‘At-Home Botanists’. Search for plants from the library or use your phone’s camera for plant picture identification. From there you’ll have accurate care guidance based on plant growing dimensions, preferred sunlight, water soil and pH at your fingertips for all your plants including annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, vegetables, turf grass, houseplants and more!
