As a novice gardener this very helpful to know what seeds or seedlings to look out for.
Thank you

Not working, so don’t bother.

As per other reviews, app falls spectacularly at the first hurdle. Times out when searching for location, and there’s no way to get past that point. Considering the last update was years ago, the developer didn’t seem to be maintaining this app. Shame, as it looked like a useful tool.

Don’t bother, it is obviously not being supported any more

App hangs and will not search or find either manually or automatically generated region/address. Gets stuck in an endless loop of this and unable to just open the app and get on with it. Very dissappointing.
