Almost perfect

I’ve found this app helpful to keep me organized and has nearly everything I would like. I love the planting suggestions for my area and the wish list with separate garden list. A couple thing I’d love to see added: the ability to add a quantity if you add a plant directly to the garden list. The ability to make a custom plant that isn’t on your list (love that you can edit harvest time and variety though!). Might be helpful to have the ability to see a spreadsheet of all your plants by week, month, year. Thanks for creating a useful app!

Nice Compact Little App

I always need to have my plant lists and keeping paper lists for seed starting, transplanting, harvest dates, and seed shopping throughout the whole season makes them super messy, lost or forgotten. This is an awesome app because I can take out my phone, pull up my lists and I can do it anywhere. In the garden or in the store. No messy, lost or forgotten lists. The reminders I get by email or on my calendar are set for my Montana Zone 4a planting times. I winter sow a lot of my seeds so the dates for starting indoors are the dates I set up my seeds in my winter sowing containers. Each plant i.e. Tomato, can be set up with each variety i.e. Brandywine Black, German Johnson, etc. for all your seeds. No more buying more of the variety you already have and wasting time and money. This app is wonderfully supported by the developer he gets right back to you. He's available by email or phone. I like to design my garden on paper so if you want an app that you can design your garden on, this isn't it. No yearly fees either!

Love it!

I am loving this app. It’s fairly simple once you get used to it. I love the companion planting, and succession planting notes.

I do wish you could add custom plants, flowers, or trees. I do love how you can take pictures although I haven’t figured out how to add an existing picture.

I also wish you could sort items by the bed/place they were planted … my planting gets a little crazy and sometimes it would be nice to be able to sort by beds so I could figure out what I have growing.

It would also be nice to see what should be coming ready to harvest soon on the app.

I definitely recommend this to others and love telling people about… great work!!!
