Add a Comment – We have added the ability for users to make comments on 1) a news post and 2) a plant profile. Users can now comment or ask a question on a plant profile at the bottom of the Plant Details section on a plant profile. Learn more: Can I add a comment? Yes.
Plant List View – You now have the option to view your plants in a photo grid or in a list by name. This option is available from your My Plants Map page viewing your plants. Soon this list view will also be available for each of your collections as well as when viewing plants and collections of others. Learn more: Can I see a list view of plants?
Plant PDF Downloads – We are temporarily trying out a new feature: a Download PDF of your plants. These were designed to be used as ‘bench cards’ for plant vendors, garden centers, etc. If you have feedback on this feature please let us know. Access is temporary and will become a paid add-on feature. Look for the Download PDF option at the top of one of your plant profiles to test it out and give us your thoughts.
