Idea

Plant care advice is often over-complicated and aimed at enthusiasts. We know modern plant owners want simple and easy to follow plant care advice, a centralised management platform and the confidence to grow the plants they want. Plant retailers want access to a new and younger customer, to digitise their offering, reduce expensive horticultural customer service and improve customer retention rates.

The app allows people to add plants to their virtual garden and receive specialist care advice. They can also identify unknown plants and pests, get monthly care info, and chat with over 100 regional experts. SmartPlant technology allows people to scan the barcode of their new plants and in return receive free premium membership and subsequent care advice, which is accompanied by 3 products and offers that link back to their original retailer.

The Market

The US and UK markets are large and addressable, in the US 74% of US households engage in gardening of some description. In the UK 27 Million people partake in gardening and younger people spent more than double the national average on their gardens last year. The Gardening and Outdoor Living Market is forecast to grow to £183.8bn by 2018.
