Instead of 'Tagging' your friends on Facebook, now you can 'Tag' your Plants in your photos!

We've created a fantastic new feature for home gardeners and gardening professionals where you can easily 'Tag' the plants which are in your photos. This feature is available for photos you upload on your member Profile (here's an example), or you add to our Plant Encyclopedia.

Each 'Tag' is a link which takes you to other photos of the same plant and to more information including Plant Facts and Plant Care Reminders in our Plant Encyclopedia.

Here's How To Do It (You need to be a member and logged into the Mulch).

First: Find the photo (in our Plant Encyclopedia, member area, our your personal galleries) or you can upload your own photo (tutorial: Add a Photo).

Second: Hover your mouse cursor (which will look like a plus (+) sign over the plant you want to TAG and hit ENTER.

Third: This will put a box where the (+) was before and open a search box to find the plant name.

Fourth: Type the plant name in the search area and hit ENTER, it will display a list of plant names in our Plant Encyclopedia. Scroll through the list and CLICK on the name of the plant and hit ENTER.

 

Fifth: A TAG will be put where the box was. This is now a link to the plant in our Plant Encyclopedia along with all sorts of other information.

You can repeat the process and add as many TAGS as you'd like! Now you don't ever have to forget the name of the plant you just planted!

So what are you waiting for? Help us out and upload a few photos of the plants you're growing and add some TAGS!

Feel free to contact us with any questions your problems you have, we'd love to have you show off your Plant Photos!
