Getting the Garden Ready for Spring
Believe it or not, tomorrow is the first day of Spring. March came in like a lion for most of us and some still face frozen earth and piles of snow. Here in the mountains of western North Carolina we see a light at the end of the tunnel and are optimistic that March will, in fact, go out like a lamb.
We’ve started getting things in order. That includes getting all our garden records up to date in Muddy Boots Plant Tags. It’s a good time for us to share a bit of information about how we use the application and we hope this will help you be more successful and satisfied.
Getting Ready to Input Plant Information
Before we start inputting and updating plant information, we get all our notes together and put all the photos we plan to update into one folder on our computer. We also resize our photos so they upload more quickly. This is more of an issue for people like us who live in a rural area and have slow internet speeds. The photos that come directly off a smart phone are typically about 3-4 megabytes in size. Photos that come off a digital camera can be far larger – 10 megabytes or more. We resize our photos to about half a megabyte, or 500k. Even if you don’t resize your photos in advance, the application will reduce the size after the upload to ensure that they load more quickly when you’re viewing them in Muddy Boots Plan Tags.
The notes we gather about the plants include:
- Where is the plant in our garden?
- When did we plant it?
- Where did the plant come from (the source)?
- Is there a link to an external website such as a botanical garden that provides more data about the characteristics of the plant? This link can be pasted into the ‘datasheet’ field in the plant record. For instance, for our Burkwood Viburnum (Viburnum × burkwoodii), we include a link to the Missouri Botanical Garden. It allows us to have rich details about the nature of the plant without replicating all the data in Muddy Boots Plant tags.
o Click here to see the Missouri Botanical datasheet for Burkwood Viburnum
o Click here to see our Burkwood Viburnum at Muddy Boots Plant Tags
Once we have this information together we’re ready to start adding it to the application.
- We add the plant record and the datasheet link.
- We add any photos we have of the plant. We keep photos over time to document how the plant looks during different seasons and over several years.
- We add journal notes where appropriate, such as when it was pruned, fertilized or has exhibited a striking bloom. We think of journal notes as something akin to a diary for each of our plants.
- We add a plant tag if appropriate. We don’t tag all of our plants, but since we’re preparing to be on garden tour again this June, we’ll be sure to tag the plants of greatest interest. This makes a better experience for our garden tour visitors because they can scan the plant tag view all the details, photos and notes about our plants on their smart phone or tablet.
We hope this helps you make the most of your of Muddy Boots Plant Tags.
Happy Spring! Mr. Boots

A 30 Second Video Overview of Muddy Boots
MUDDY BOOTS PLANT TAGS 30-SECOND OVERVIEW
Muddy Boots Plant Tags is a web-based software garden record-keeping application to help gardeners keep records about their plants and gardens. It’s simple to use and allows gardeners to keep journal notes, record information about their plants, upload pictures, and it’s integrated with an interactive QR-coded plant tag that can be scanned with a smart phone. Gardeners can access their information from their computer, tablet and phone so they can take their records with them into the garden. It’s an innovative way for gardeners to do what they’ve always done: make notes, keep garden records, label plants, and organize pictures of their garden to tell a story.
Garden-Based Education and Learning
Garden-based learning puts hands on activities in the garden at the heart of encouraging children to learn by connecting with nature. Many kids would rather touch things than hear an adult talk about things, so getting their hands dirty and their boots muddy is an increasingly popular approach with many benefits: not the least of which is connecting children with a major natural food source.
A Common Description of Garden-Based Learning
Garden-based learning encompasses programs, activities and projects in which the garden is the foundation for integrated learning, in and across disciplines, through active, engaging, real-world experiences that have personal meaning for children, youth, adults and communities in an informal outside learning setting. Garden-based learning is an instructional strategy that uses the garden as a teaching tool.
A Teacher’s Experience
A story from National Public Radio (NPR) described a teacher’s efforts to get children outside more and engaged with nature. It was based on the fact that kids in the United States are spending less time outside, for a variety of reasons. Even in kindergarten, the amount of time allocation to recess has been cut back, leading to less time outside and more time cooped up inside. A teacher in the small town of Quechee, Vt decided that she wanted to have her student spend an entire day outside. After contemplating the idea she realized that it wouldn’t fly in a public school. But she ran it by her principal and much to her surprise the principal said, “try it.”
It’s called Forest Monday. Every Monday the kids suit up and go outside, regardless of the weather. [READ MORE]
Benefits of Garden-Based Learning
Cornell University has a garden-based learning program and reports several benefits of the program that are backed by a variety of research studies:
Nutrition awareness. Kids and families who are involved in gardening become more aware of and interested in fruits and vegetables, having a potentially positive influence on health.
Environmental awareness. Elementary school and junior high school students gained more positive attitudes about environmental issues after participating in a school garden program.
Learning achievements. Elementary school students who participated in school gardening activities scored significantly higher on science achievement tests than those who did not participate in any garden-based learning activities.
Documenting Garden-Based Learning
As kids embark on garden-based learning, it’s important to track progress and make notes of what is learned along the way. Documenting a garden is important, especially when it’s related to garden-based learning. Keeping track of plantings with a garden-record keeping system such as Muddy Boots Plant Tags can help preserve an historic record of the garden from breaking ground to blooms or harvests.

Muddy Boots Unveils Smartphone Scannable Plant Tags With Garden Record-Keeping Web Application
ASHEVILLE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE) – JANUARY 4, 2017 –Over the past decade, Nancy Duffy has built a lovely ornamental garden but has been frustrated for years with her plant tags. “With thousands of plants in my garden it’s hard to remember all the names,” said Nancy. “I walk the garden with my gardening friends and crawl around the ground looking for a tag, which may or may not be there and if it is, it may not be legible anymore.”
A professional garden designer and avid gardener, Nancy came up with a solution. Muddy Boots Plant Tags are durable plant tags that can be scanned by a smart phone, retrieving information about the plant that the gardener has input into the Muddy Boots Garden Record-Keeping Application. “Instead of crawling around to find the tag and reading the tag, often at ground level, you scan the tag and read information about your plant on your phone,” said Nancy.
The Muddy Boots Garden Record-Keeping Application allows gardeners to organize all the information about their garden in one place, accessible from a computer, smartphone or tablet. “Gardeners can keep much better records about their plants including journal notes and pictures. No more tattered notebooks and file folders,” said Nancy. “And the gardener can access the data from the house or out in the garden. The interactive, scannable plant tags can be scanned by the gardener or visitors with a simple QR code scanner on a smartphone or tablet.”
Mignon Durham is an avid gardener using Muddy Boots Plant Tags in Asheville, NC and she says, “I am a detail geek, with a bent to documentation, photography, and maintaining folders of plant tags and sales receipts. Muddy Boots Plant Tags is the perfect solution. Muddy Boots Plant Tags now has all my plant and garden history (three years of information now available on my iPad, iPhone, or laptop). Furthermore, any plants with a QR coded plant tag can be scanned on a smartphone while out in the garden for access to its entire record.”
Bullington Gardens, a 12-acre horticultural education center and public garden in Henderson County, NC, has recently selected Muddy Boots Plant Tags. “We are excited to implement Muddy Boots Plant Tags. The Record-Keeping Application will allow us to better organize information about our remarkable plant collection and the plant tags will make that information accessible to our many visitors,” said John Murphy, Director of Bullington Gardens.
Muddy Boots Plant Tags are made of aluminum and feature a unique QR code that links it to the plant data in the Garden Record-Keeping Application. The tags are durable and made to hold up for years in the elements. These plant tags are available in bundles of five at the website. A purchase of plant tags is not required when using the Garden Record-Keeping Application; however, the plant tags are necessary for scanning plants while out in the garden.
The Muddy Boots Garden Record-Keeping Application is free for gardeners with up to 25 plants and 50 photos. Gardeners with more plants and photos may purchase a subscription for $4.95 per month, or $49.95 per year allowing up to 500 plant records and 5,000 photos. There are higher level plans for larger gardens described at the website. All levels include unlimited plant and garden journal notes and are “Ad Free” – no ads whatsoever appear in the Garden Record-Keeping Application.
Spending on Lawns and Gardens Jumps, Led by Millennials and Boomers
APRIL 27, 2016 – The U.S. is a nation full of gardeners – and they’re spending more money on their lawns and gardens than in recent years. Lawn and garden spending reached a reported $36.1 billion dollars in 2015 according to recently released results of the annual National Gardening Survey, bouncing back from a five-year low in 2014.
“Participation in gardening did not decline much during the economic downturn,” says industry analyst Bruce Butterfield, who adds, “people have been participating in gardening all along but they weren’t spending as much in recent years.” The average amount spent on the back yard or balcony nationwide in 2015 was $401 per household, up from a low of $317 in 2014.
“The $36 billion dollar question is if lawn and garden sales will stay at this level in the future,” says Butterfield, who heads the National Gardening Market Research Company and oversees the survey each year. “These results are encouraging. Not only did DIY gardening have 6 million more customers, they spent more, too,” adds Butterfield.
An estimated 90 million households participated in do-it-yourself lawn and gardening activities last year – in and outdoors. That’s about 75-percent of all U.S. households. According to the survey, the highest spending was among baby boomers, married households, those with annual incomes of over $75,000 and college graduates – but the most important market force was 18-34 year olds. Five million of the six million ‘new’ gardening households were Millennials.
Food gardening and flower gardening were the most popular gardening activities last year. About one out of three households participated in food gardening (36%) or flower gardening (34%). Households spent an estimated $3.6 billion growing vegetables, fruit, berries and herbs and $2.7 billion on flower gardening.

The report includes analysis by Butterfield and an extended additional analysis of the data and commentary on the gardening market by Ian Baldwin, a leading national business advisor to garden and hardware retailers.
Better Homes And Gardens Survey Finds That Millennial Generation Values Personalization As Top Priority For The Home
74% Say Smart Home Technology Aids Customization; 64% Say Smart Home Technology Easily Integrates into Personal Style, Taste and Décor.
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Better Homes and Gardens, the leading lifestyle brand that reaches nearly 40 million readers each month, today released findings from its eighth-annual exclusive survey revealing attitude and behavior trends of homeowners in the U.S. This year’s research focused on the millennial generation and its preferences on customization and smart technology in home design. Just over 1,600 U.S. female homeowners living in single-family homes shared their thoughts on home improvement spending, the importance of functional design, and value in home technology.
During a presentation at the National Association of Home Builders Show in Las Vegas, Jill Waage, Brand Executive Editor for Better Homes and Gardens, presented these findings and offered insight on the needs of today’s current and future homeowners.
“Our research shows that women 35 and under feel strongly that their homes are a reflection of their own personalities,” Waage says. “Further, members of this generation view technology as a way to customize living spaces to fit their needs. Year over year, millennials are increasingly adopting a positive outlook on the incorporation of smart technology into their homes, and are using it to personalize the homeowner experience.”
Key findings from this year’s “Home Factor” survey include:
A FOCUS ON PERSONALIZATION
Millennials place importance on maintaining a home that is more personalized to their preferences than the generation before them. Almost two-thirds (63% percent) of millennial respondents surveyed say that having a home customized to their tastes and needs is a top priority. Similarly, 6 in 10 millennial respondents say that having a home that is “a reflection of me” is more important to them than to their parents’ generation.
THE INTEGRATION OF SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY
Smart technology is increasingly seen by U.S. women, particularly those under 35, as a feature that improves home safety, health, and connections with families. Millennials agree that smart technology is customizable to their needs (74%), makes their homes more energy efficient (70%), and saves them time (67%).
As opposed to just one year ago, millennials have a more positive outlook on smart technology in the home:
- In 2015, 68% of millennials said that smart home technology is a good investment, as compared to only 57% in 2014.
- In 2015, 73% of millennials said that smart home technology makes their homes safer, as compared to only 64% in 2014.
- Millennials today think that smart technology makes their homes healthier (64%), compared to only 55% in 2014.
- Further, the millennial cohort feels that smart home technology is becoming easier to maintain.
- Fifty-five percent of millennial respondents say that smart home features are easily maintained and upgraded, as compared to only 46% of millennial respondents in 2014.
Smart Technology Use
Today, 54% of homeowners under 35 use at least one of the 16 smart technology features measured in the study. On their wish list, 39% of millennials say that they would most like to use smart devices to operate appliance settings, while 36% say they would like quality sleep tracking and reporting.
Seventy-four percent of millennial respondents say that smart technology is customizable to their needs, while 64% say that it can be integrated into their style, taste and décor.
Costs of Home Technology
Though respondents say that home technology is customizable to their needs, only 51% of millennial respondents say smart technology is customizable to their budget. Across generations, 7 in 10 respondents say smart technology costs a lot of money.
OPINIONS ON SPENDING AND HOME IMPROVEMENT
Compared to older generations, millennials are willing to pay more for high-quality products. However, while 44% say they are willing to spend top dollar to get exactly the features and quality they want, 60% also say they are willing to compromise on what they want in order to save money.
Of those surveyed, one in five homeowners is in the process of planning or working on an interior project – led by those ages 35 and younger. While millennial homeowners are similar to older homeowners with regard to the many types of projects they are working on and planning, survey responses found a higher interest in creating office space and adding storage at home:
- 13% of millennial homeowners are creating a home office, work space, or family communication center.
- 15% of millennial homeowners are adding storage space.
The idea of personalization also extends into exterior spaces:
- 1 in 3 millennials says that exterior makeovers are expensive and not worth the investment.
- Compared to traditional curb appeal projects like new doors, paint or roofing, landscaping ranked as the top priority (at 44%) for millennials looking to boost curb appeal.
- About half of millennials (51%) report that they decorate their outdoor living space like they would an indoor dining or living room. More than three-quarters (77%) say they want their outdoor living space to feel like a relaxing retreat.
Millennials surveyed report they are looking to upgrade or make additions to their outdoor living spaces, including landscape lighting (27%), a fire pit (26%), and lamps or party lights (24%). Almost one-quarter of millennials (24%) plan to add or upgrade comfortable seating, outdoor dining tables and chairs, and other accessories that make the outdoor area feel like a room.
“The places where millennials choose to spend their money are very telling of the values within this generation,” Waage notes. “The addition of a home work space speaks to the mobile millennial who is less confined by a corporate office or job. The emphasis on outdoor living and entertaining testifies to the importance of togetherness. And with the addition of smart home technology, millennial attitudes toward the home incorporate connectivity in every sense.”
About the survey: The quantitative online survey was fielded in October 2015 among 1,610 U.S. female homeowners living in single-family homes. Of those surveyed, 800 respondents (49.7%) are from the Better Homes and Gardens “Meredith Knows Women” consumer panel, while 810 respondents (50.3%) were secured through Survey Sampling Inc. to represent U.S. female homeowners.

Tips on using QR coded plant tags
We were recently asked for tips on using QR codes as gardeners.
- QR codes on plant tags are more durable than tags that are written on or etched by hand. They may be made of aluminum or plastic and the QR code can be scanned with a smart phone or tablet out in the garden to read the plant information on your phone.
- Paired with a garden record-keeping system QR-coded plant tags are helpful in identifying plants. With hundreds or thousands of plants in a garden, we gardeners just can’t remember all the names. Scan it with your phone and view all the information about your plant that you’ve put into your record-keeping system, including pictures and journal notes.
- Many gardeners have information about their garden in multiple places. Pictures on a computer or phone, journal notes in note books, plant receipts in baggies, file folders or envelopes. Having a QR coded tag linked with a garden record-keeping system, gardeners can have all their garden records, photos and journals in one place, accessible by phone, tablet or computer.
A live example: download a QR code reader on a smart phone (there are plenty free) and you can scan the tag below (or click on it, to get the idea) to see a plant record from Nancy Duffy’s garden.
One of the QR code readers we find to be very good is i-nigma:

Nancy Duffy is an avid gardener and professional garden designer in Asheville NC. The idea for using QR coded tags for plants, combined with a garden record-keeping came to her in a dream (really) and was developed into a product in 2016 and soft-launched in November. It’s called Muddy Boots Plant Tags.
Video – How to Add a Plant, a Photo and a Journal Note
You can see your unassigned tags when you are adding or editing a plant record. You select a plant from the Garden Records Page by clicking on the red pencil. That will take you to the plant edit screen. On the plant edit screen you’ll see a box labeled Plant Tag. When you click on that you can see all of the available tag numbers in your account that are not yet assigned to a plant.
Assigned Plant Tags
You can easily see the plant tags that you have assigned to plants through the Garden Records screen. While viewing the Garden Record screen, click on the heading of the Plant Tag column to sort by Plant Tag. Plants without a plant tag assigned will show first, followed by plants with plant tags assigned.
Virtual Plant Tags
When you first sign up for the free plan at Muddy Boots Plant Tags, you receive a virtual plant tag. It’s an image that is placed in your My Account page that you can use to get a better understanding of how this works.
To scan a QR-coded Muddy Boots Plant Tag, you’ll need a QR-code reader on your smartphone or tablet. Don’t be frightened; it’s FREE and easy. There are more than a few FREE QR-code readers for iOS devices (iPhone/iPad) and Android devices. The reader we find to be friendly and easy is i-nigma. Here are links you can use to download the i-nigma reader onto your iOS or Android device:
Get the i-nigma for iPhone/iPad here.
Get the i-nigma for Android here.
Here’s how you can use this. After signing up and adding a plant record, assign the virtual plant tag to your plant. You’ll be able to scan that virtual plant tag after assigning it. You can download that tag as an image file from your My Account page by right clicking it and saving it on your computer. But you can also scan that tag right off your computer screen.
Here is an example of a live virtual plant tag. Go ahead and scan it to see Japanese Maple ‘Floating Cloud’ – Acer palmatum ‘Ukigumo’:
Assign a Tag
You can assign any available tag in your account to a plant record in your account. You can do this when you’re adding the plant or if you’re editing the plant. You select a plant from the Garden Records page by clicking on the red pencil. That will take you to the plant edit screen. On the plant edit screen you’ll see a box labeled Plant Tag. When you click on that you can see all of the available tag numbers in your account and select one from the drop-down box.
EDITING THE PLANT
In this example, there was no plant tag assigned.
In this example, the same plant has had a plant tag assigned. After selecting the tag, click Update This Plant.
From the Menu in the top right corner, you may select Garden Snapshot. This is a page where you may input general information about your garden and write a short story about your garden. You may also select a picture from your PHOTO GALLERY which will display on the Garden Snapshot page.
In the Garden Snapshot you may enter:
- Garden Name: the name you’ve given your garden
- Garden Size: the size of your property
- Garden Location: where your garden is
- Climate: how you describe the climate that you garden in
- Soil: what your soil is like

How Can I get My Data Out of Muddy Boots Plant Tags?
On the My Account page, below the PLANT AND PICTURE SUMMARY, you will see four EXPORT options.
By clicking on the ‘HERE’ link next to each of the four exports, you may download all of your data.
Plant Records, Journal Notes and Photo Captions are downloaded as CSV text files. CSV files may then be uploaded into almost any spreadsheet product such as Excel. The records in each of these files can be linked together with a unique Plant ID. Keep in mind you must have a level of basic skill with some spreadsheet tool to connect these things together. But the data is all there.
Photos are exported into a compressed zip file. The individual photo files are named after the unique Plant ID so you can link Photo Captions with the actual image files. If you have a lot of photos in your Muddy Boots Plant Tags account, this may take a several minutes to download.
The downloads are handled based on the settings of your browser. By default, some browsers put download files into a specific folder, such as ‘Downloads’. Those who tend to do more downloading adjust their browser settings so that they are prompted to select a folder for the download rather than accepting the default download folder. The bottom line is that it will export and where it goes when it’s exported is based on your browser settings.
NOTE: Remember, when you upload photos to Muddy Boot Plant Tags, the image file is resized so it loads quickly when viewed. Your original file on your computer does not change. When you EXPORT photos, you will get back the RESIZED image, not the original size. Keep in mind, you uploaded the photos into Muddy Boots Plant Tags so you should still have the originally sized photos on your computer, phone or tablet.
