Ratings and Reviews
Once you add a plant you are not able to edit information about the plant. You are unable to delete and start over. You have one shot to get it right.
Also plants are limited to just general name. You have to add type and additional information.
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!
Easy to use but….
Very simple and easy to use though the planting suggestion based on Zones for me being 5b central Colorado are so far off. For example telling me to transplant seedling into the garden. The typical last frost is not until May 30th 7-8 weeks from now. Soil temps are below 50F right now. So adding plants they show up as planted when they are actually just seeds being started and no way to override. Ap needs some serious work.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
