About Us

Based in Dallas Texas, the PlantTAGG® team has been at the forefront of technology innovation for consumers, brands, and retailers for over 15 years. We are driven by a passion to improve the success gardeners of all levels have with plant ownership through technological innovation.


The PlantTAGG system is a data and AI-driven platform comprising multiple sources such as the Dallas County Master Gardeners Association, US Department of Agriculture, NOAA, Texas A&M AgriLife Research, EagleView, and a wealth of global horticulture experts.


Today’s mobile technologies provide the powerful ability to deliver a highly localized experience to the gardener which we believe is a critical factor in the data science and artificial intelligence we have built into PlantTAGG.  As gardeners use PlantTAGG, machine learning causes the system to get smarter!

With so many variables to consider such as climate, environment, location and plant genetics, it’s a wonder we are able to have any success gardening.  A lack of information is the problem – dead plants are the symptom.  To solve the problem we have assembled a team of entrepreneurs, horticulturists and data scientists to build a world-changing platform.  Its no small feat, but we are up to the challenge!
