Matt is an avid gardener. The more familiar he got with plants, the harder it became to find what he was looking for. The horticulture industry in North America as a whole has been slow to adopt online marketing and ecommerce, meaning finding plant material is not as easy as doing a Google search. More often than not finding a specific plant means driving to several different garden centers, with no guarantee of success. We created Plantola to bring more transparency to the horticulture industry, and solve 3 basic problems.
1. Plants are hard to take with you. Plantola makes it easy to catalog and share your garden with friends through photos. Your garden is as close as your iPhone.
2. Plants are hard to identify, which makes them hard to find. Plantola let’s you connect with other gardeners and plant enthusiasts. Chances are someone knows what you are looking at and where it can be purchased.
3. Plants are very geo-specific. All plants, especially those grown outdoors, require specific growing conditions to survive and thrive. We have built several geo-location features into Plantola, and they will continue to be enhanced as the App develops.
