Planting Calendar is the easy way to work out the best planting times for vegetables, herbs, fruit, green manures and common companion planting flowers. It uses a database of over 6,500 weather stations around the world to locate average frost dates for your garden and calculate the best range of planting dates for each crop.
Planting dates calculated using averaged frost data which is much more accurate than other systems
Planting Calendar can split cool-season crops into separate Spring and Autumn planting for areas that experience hot summer temperatures
Full growing information for over 120 vegetables, herbs, fruit, green manures and companion planting flowers
Includes the soil and position the plant will grow best in, sowing advice, troubleshooting tips and how to harvest it.
List plants alphabetically, by sowing month or just what can be planted right now for your local area
Create a favourites list of the plants in your garden for quick access to information on those
Based on information from the GrowVeg.com Garden Planner, used by over 100,000 people worldwide
Please note: because Planting Calendar uses averaged frost data to calculate planting times it it not suitable for areas with sub-tropical climates or where frost is not experienced.
This update includes a number of small fixes and is recommended for all users.

How do you change your location??
Love the simple setup. It’s not clogged down with extras, and it has a lot of information. However, they make it nearly impossible to change your location.
I recently moved to a different state with a vastly different climate, and just like the last time I moved, the only way I have found to change your location, is to delete the app, and reinstall it.
Seems to me like changing your location should be one of those no brainer functions.
Good basic info at your fingertips
I like the ability to save favorites and see all the planting / harvesting times at a glance. It really simplifies things when I'm at garden center.
I also like the ability to get email alerts to tell you when it's time to plant things.
They also have some useful suggestions for some plants to help extend your growing season. I'm looking forward to planting some miners lettuce to get a winter crop of greens, and some Malabar spinach in the spinach.
