why do i even want this ,

Excellent concept

The concept of the app is brilliant and when I first downloaded it I was using it nonstop. But after buying the subscription for a couple of months I found it less and less helpful. For example, I found some sort of fungi growing on my balcony and they told me they don’t know anything about fungi and that I’d need to go to a specialist. Normally that would’ve been fine but I wasn’t paying monthly to have that lacklustre answer - in short, I’d suggest to use the app but don’t pay for the features as it’s not worth it. Or use an app similar that’s free or cheaper.
Another factor was I was told I’d pay 99p in the first month and then 3.99 in the following. Instead, they were charging me 4.99 the whole time and that was not made clear. The app itself is slow, glitchy and often crashes. Again I believe the app is an amazing idea but it needs to be worth the money they charge. I feel sorry for the people who signed up to the MUCH more expensive subscriptions.

Really good up until latest update

I was a keen user of the app as great for organising plants and getting care advise....until the recent update of being able to organise by area. A bug I think but my care items went from only being able to scroll to a point before kicking me out of the app completely to now not being able to access the care tab at all. It tries to load and kicks me out. I have tried to contact support numerous times with no success. I have tried three times via the app, three emails sent and I tried on the web form and had nothing back. I pay the pro rate so will be cancelling if I don’t hear anything soon, a shame as my gardening interest has increased massively since adopting this app as an amateur gardener.

Cool app

I love plants but have little plant knowledge - how can you know what things are without ever being told, taught or having a chance to find out about them?

So SmartPlant is just so practical and easy to use! I love being able to tap into the collective wisdom of the elves behind the app. It’s a great tool to help you figure out whether that stuff that’s growing madly in your patch is a keeper or a weeder! I’ve also used it to ID photos taken of plants I’ve spotted while out and about that I’ve quite fancied for my own garden.

I love that it tells you the ideal time to prune the roses too (you don’t have to if you don’t want to!) It doesn’t judge. In fact it’s really very friendly!
