What are interactive plant labels?

Plants Map makes it easy and affordable to order custom, interactive plant tags or signs. Our signs have something you won’t find on other tags – a QR code or NFC chip that directly connects your plants to a smartphone. Touch the chip or scan the code to open the plant’s unique page on PlantsMap.com and then you can edit notes and add photos to the plant page. Visitors to your garden can scan to read the story of your plant and see photos of it in all seasons. Now anyone can add attractive, long-lasting plant identification to any landscape or plant collection.

Testimonials

I love these tags! Being a home gardener, they are not only durable and affordable, but they link to the pages that I use to track what is in my gardens and how are they growing. I have the ability to put exactly the information I want on the tags -- In my case Latin name, Common name and then using "TEXT" I include whether the plants are native to my county, my state etc. Plants Map is one of my favorite tools in my gardens here on Indigo Lane.

Plants Map is truly unique idea. The Cecil College and Horticulture Club was excited to be able to participate in this program. Our plant tags arrived quickly. Loading data into your own "Plants Map" is user friendly. This will make learning about the College Plants more interactive and fun.

I teach a Mountain Ecology course at a boarding school for high school boys in Virginia. Over the years the students in this course have built and developed an Interpretive Trail on campus. After discovering Plants Map, I quickly realized it was a great way to create a digital record of the numerous tree ID signs that have been created over the years. We have also utilized PlantsMap's ID tags for numerous trees on the school's Front Lawn. Plants Map is a great tool to help my students generate content and create a reference database for others. The database is also proving to be instrumental as we seek Arboretum status with ArbNet.

Plantsmap.com has allowed our school to create a user-friendly data base of the Lower School's significant trees and shrubs so that teachers are able to access and share with the younger students. The tags also help our families and visitors to access this information. We also provide links to the Plants Map site on our school's website. We look forward to expanding our database as we plant new trees, as well.
