Before adding a list of plants, select which garden you would like with the drop down tab just above the ‘Add Plants’ button.

Once you have added your list, check through for spelling mistakes and descriptive information such as ‘(dark red)’ seen highlighted above. Please correct spellings and erase any other information other than the plant name otherwise it will fail to match.

When complete, click ‘Add Plants’. You will see a pop up of to tell you how many plants were added to your selected garden.

You will receive an email similar to this to tell you which plants we could not match on:

You then have the option to request a plant or using our advance search tool.

We have had great feedback on this new feature so far. Please do comment below or tweet us to tell us your thoughts. We would love to hear from you!

And if you are not a member yet, please sign-up to TRY SHOOT FREE.

Get started – feedback pls

To help new members to get started with Shoot we are working on a two-step ‘get started’ process on sign-up. This will help customise Shoot for each member so that we can provide plant care advice reminders and recommended plants for every members’ own garden.

This presentation below shows the proposed design and steps. You can click the icon bottom right to expand to full screen. Click the right arrow to take you through the entire presentation.

Before we implement this new set-up process we would like feedback on how easy these steps are to understand. Are they easy to follow? Is there too much wording? Is there enough explanation? Would anything prevent you from filling in the information? Feedback is most welcome.
Note: because the designs are in a presentation format they appear a bit fuzzy and the small text is hard to read. These will be much clearer once on the live website.

We want to hear from you

As we are gearing up to start our own Gardening Marketplace this Spring 2012 we’d love to hear from you!

What would you like to see for sale in our marketplace? Which are your favourite plants, gardening products and suppliers? Who do you most like doing your shopping with and why? Do you have any small, local favourites?

Please feel free to add comments at the bottom of this post. We hope to hear from you!
