How To Identify A Plant

How to Identify a Plant in Your Home Garden

Suppose you are at a garden center and you spot a plant with no tag and there isn’t a garden center associate near by to help you with the identification?  Spring arrives and all the new green is popping up and you can’t remember which is a plant you put there or a weed.  All of us have been in this situation at some point in our gardening adventures and each of us have our own unique way of finding the facts.  Join the conversation as we ask the top gardening communicators who enjoy engaging on social media #gardenchat discussing the best ways to find the right plant identification.
