Plants are hard to identify, which makes them hard to find. Plantola solves this problem by letting you see plants being grown by other gardeners, and details like where they were purchased. See something you like? Plantola makes it easy to share that interest with friends and local retailers. Take pictures of plants and post them to Plantola. Share those pictures by email, or post them to Twitter or Facebook.
