PlantSnap (Android) Have you ever been out and about and wondered what species that beautiful plant, flower or tree is? PlantSnap is a mobile application for iOS, Android & Windows built to help you identify plants with one snap. Simply take a picture of the plant, and PlantSnap will tell you what it is in seconds

Flower Checker (Android) FlowerChecker is an identification app. You can use it to identify various species of flowers, lichens, and other types of plants. What makes this one special is that it doesn’t use a computer algorithm to figure it out. There are actual flower experts (so the marketing jargon goes) that identify them for you. The only downside is that you have to pay for each identification. There are easier ways to identify well-known flowers. However, this is a great service for those super weird ones that you just can’t find yourself. That makes it one of the more effective gardening apps.

Gro (Android)

GRO is another one of the up-and-coming gardening apps. It bills itself as an all-in-one solution. There is information on how to prepare your garden, grow plants, and even cook and share plants.

You can find info like the earliest time to plant tomatoes without frostbite. It’s useful and free. The app has a lot of potential. However, some may find it lacking for now

PlantNet (Android)

PlantNet is a plant identification app. It is slowly getting images and categorizing tons of different types of plant life. What’s neat about this one is that you can help. Those that find plants not in the directory can snap a high quality photo and send it in. The developers will eventually add it to the database. It also features Material Design. That’s always a positive thing. The app itself is also totally free. You can have something like this along with FlowerChecker+ and you’ll likely be able to identify everything
