using a QR codeHave you seen those funny-looking barcode squares on packages in the garden center?  Today I am going to share with you how QR codes can help you in the garden.

In The Garden with Bren

Earlier today I was a little frustrated because I couldn’t get a QR code to read while shopping at a local store.  I tried everything including restarting my iPhone to making sure the QR scan code app was up to date.  As I share this with you now I can’t help but wonder why I didn’t think of trying a different product provider code at the time rather than getting so frustrated.

Do you use QR code scans that are very common in most garden products available on the market today?  I hope to share with you some extremely important information about its use on garden packages and more with hopes that you will give this technology a try.  In the video featured below, I share how to use the QR reader code app and a few other tips about the technology.

What are QR Codes?

Commonly used in Japan the this is short for Quick Response (they can be read quickly by a cell phone). They are used to take a piece of information from an image on a package, box, billboard, and put it into your cell phone. I’ve seen QR codes on business cards and even on apparel. Once it is in your cell phone, it may give you details about the product or business, or details about the person wearing the scan takes you to their URL of choice, and can even direct you to coupons!

The reason why they are more useful than a standard barcode is that they can store (and digitally present) much more data, including URL links, geo coordinates, and text. The really cool thing about the QR codes is you can read them anywhere with your cell phone.

The QR codes on gardening products can help you learn more about the product within seconds.  Details the product provider can’t fit on a simple package like :

  • Product details
  • A link to your YouTube or Vimeo video
  • Contact details
  • A coupon
  • Offer details
  • Event details
  • Competition details
  • Twitter, Facebook, Google, Pinterest Links
