Having difficulty

I love the concept of this app but here are the issues I have had so far: Took me 4 tries to set up an account, different choices of where I want to go in the app requires additional sign ins even if I select from your emails. This is frustrating. Once I sign in to the app I should not have to sign in again to go to another part of the app. I realize part of this may be a learning curve but right now I am very frustrated!! The sending of my plant and getting a response was the easy part. Also, how do I earn credits? Will I need them if I buy a premium membership? Thank you!

Friend or Foe? Weed or Wanted? BEST APP !!

I love this app! It’s amazing to send off a pic of a small clump of leaves and have someone speedily identify if it’s a weed or something I planted (and forgotten).

This is a great app. I love the ability to ask questions and the experts respond! The people who identify my plants are so knowledgeable and kind.

We have a tiny nyc garden. The super ordered a cheap organic soil a few years ago and the folks at this app helped me identify hemlock, ornamental strawberry vines and a bunch of other weird stuff not normally found on a nyc sidewalk. They were super at finding out what strange thing had begun to grow in our little space.

I can’t recommend this app enough. I love it. It is the secret of my green thumb - with their help I am able to label every plant and know I am yanking out a weed not something I bought, planted and forgot.

Best app I’ve purchased. I happily pay the small subscription fee for a years worth of garden glory!

2 Green Thumbs Up!!

Downloaded app specifically because I searched everywhere trying to identify this particular plant. Even my local nursery, one of the best around, was stumped. BUT....they did recommend this app! Downloaded, posted question with photo and within an hour someone correctly identified the mystery plant. VERY impressed. Hope I can return the favor to help someone else down the road. Oh and I didn't have to pay to get an answer like several other apps. Highly recommend.
