@cyndi yeah I saw some. I think they did their job as its starting to grow. My finger limes however had almost all flowers dying and there where many more bees on it... I'll only have about 3 limes this year... 😞

Sometimes newer plants will do better only as they get older... 😉 especially fruits and berries. Best wishes

I left them for dead all winter (Geneva, Switzerland) and they come back! It's known as "Siberian kiwi" and they are delicious!!! Even more vitamin also!

Just testing the app and want to keep the 10 free plants planner for other plants. This is a Kiwai Issai or "mini kiwi" that can survive -15°C and don't need too much care :)

Welcome to GardenTags Mat. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed with this app. It’s become a virtual international gardening club with some amazingly knowledgable people on it. Have fun!

Thanks #awomanonabike but I don't understand how asking for help on a plant I already know would work... It seems focused on identifying plants & not on the rest. For example I added an identified plant with a question about fructification but it still shows it as unidentified... Not sure what I did wrong... And I want to keep the free version of the app for testing but I cannot show all my identified plants without loosing planning for the ones that are coming and in need for advanced features

#cyndi thanks, I'm surely able to introduce some funny stuff like a cheese plant very rare but the notification I received like "10 plants then premium version" surely gives restraints to contribute which feels very odd.... 🤔 #teamgardentags maybe something to consider in clarifying for newbies 😉

I’m not entirely sure that I understand your problem. When you add a plant that you already know the ID, you add it as a plant by looking for it in GT plant base. There’s no limit to how many you can add, the limit is on the number of tasks that you can add. Once added it is easy to read up about it in the encyclopaedia and even easier to see other examples. You can then post any query directly to someone who has already posted that plant though with time you’ll learn who the people are who...

...are likely to be able to help and tag them within your own post, like this @cyndi (add @ then start to type their name). You can also find info by hashtags eg #kiwi #kiwi-tip etc.

I agree with @awomanonabike no limit to how many plants you add just on the task but that's easy work around and get tips help advice with so many who might have same plant or can help do research etc.. Hope this clears things up a bit for you Mat. You don't have to pay to use that you can wait on if you want and learn the app more. But add all your plants no problem.. 😊 find them easier under latin names cus most have more than one common name. Play around in encyclopedia and the tags #
