Great for novices and green thumbs!

I started using this app to plan out my garden as a novice. At first, I just wanted an app to help me remember what I planted where (I didn’t have fancy signs or even stakes handy to label anything!) Then I found this app which goes beyond simple mapping with the companion/combative plant feature, telling you what plants like and dislike each other as neighbors. Wow! I went ahead and upgraded, not because I really need the features (the basic app has all I need as a beginner with a single 10’ x 10’ plot) but to support the app so it can continue to exist and improve.

I mentioned the app to my mom who is an expert gardener and sometimes struggles with technology. I thought she might find it interesting, but didn’t expect her to use and enjoy the app as much as I do! She even learned a few plant relationships herself, which is amazing considering her encyclopedic knowledge. It is a testament to this app’s intuitiveness and reliability that a less tech-savvy person like my mom was able to master it and get so much value from it.

Several Gardens Preplanned

LOVE THIS APP! We have been using graph paper and pencil for years and having to keep in mind the companion plants, and spacing needs. Too much work. Now, this app does it for us. Our 11 x 4 foot raised garden bed (24 inches high) is ready for what we have planned. Love the information given and the choices that include not only veggies, but my fruit bushes and flowers. I’ve been able to involve the kids in the planning and decision making in a modality that they love - my iPad! They are actually reading all of the descriptions provided on the individual page! And, being a teacher, I love that. We are very excited to begin our planting this spring. Thank you.

P.s. hoping you can add green beans vs. yellow beans, and summer squash vs. zucchini so that the kids can SEE the difference on their garden planner. We are on the ‘visual’ side of the learning curve.

Planter app

I bought the lifetime license for $10. It’s a decent app for a small garden. I have used territorial seed garden planner for years, but it’s about $20/ year. I’m trying SFG this year so I thought I would try it. The free version only lets you create one bed, so I upgraded.

I like that you can customize your specific varieties of vegetables and it is easy to set up. The icons and photos are pretty. I am curious if I can include plant labels in my plan. (For different varieties)

The buttons are a bit finicky. Single tap a veggie to get details, long tap to plant it. (I found that I was always accidentally tapping the information instead of planting). Annoying. It could easily be reversed. Single tap to plant, long tap for information. Or just make it separate features.

I also had to select the “tap to plant “ feature over and over. I wish it would stay on until I turned it off.

I found deleting and moving veggies to be finicky too. It’s a drag and drop, but getting it in the exact spot was a challenge. Sometimes I had to attempt to delete an item multiple times. This feature needs some more development, in my opinion.

So, it’s a good app. Not amazing, but it’s good enough for what I need (which was mostly plant spacing and figuring out the plants are beneficial to one another.) I’m hoping that since I bought the license I will benefit from upgrades.
