Impressive! The app and it creators! Just keeps getting better...


I will be honest here... I did not give this app a very good rating in my original review, I really wanted it to work because I liked the concept it embodied, garden socially. I suggested in my previous review that they listen to the suggestions of its users. Months went by and I even forgot that I had ever written a review. (Which is probably why most of the negative reviews on here are completely outdated) Myself and a few others started attaching our recommendations for improvements to the 'additional comments' section when adding new plants to the system. Well we heard back from the GrowIt team and even directly from it's co-founders! They seemed appreciative of our suggestions, were preparing to implement some of them, and then even asked for more! It feels like I have a team working for me to develop my app while I'm busy working away in the garden. What up app does that?! GROWIT! They updated the app and it looks great! It does everything it claims. I've even made quite a few new friends.

It may not be perfect (rarely anything is)
but as far as I can tell...
The only thing missing now is you.

With every new profile created, GrowIt grows brighter and brighter.
You really can garden socially...

Not Very Useful


I was expecting more from this app when I first downloaded it. I thought I’d be able to at least chat with other gardeners in my area to share ideas and experience.

However, all I found where a bunch of (poorly taken pictures) of plants asking for help to identify them. Don’t get me wrong, this is a good feature and I was going to answer one of them, but you can only pick from predetermined options for what the plant is. With so many unique varieties of heirlooms and hybrids, these options are significantly lacking. I wish I could at least put in a request to add a new option, or, better yet, just let me provide my answer right away after typing it in.

I just really wish there was just more to do in this app. It really isn’t that hard to add more. It should allow you to post more than simple questions and pictures of plants. There should also be a limit to how many pictures of the same plant one person can post along with a guide on how to take a decent picture that would help to identify the plant: including a clear close up of leaves, flowers, seeds, fruit.

But most of all, I just want some sort of message system.

I’m sorry, but right now this app is very poor and not useful. It needs more, but it is the only app out there for “social” gardening.

On its way to being perfect, but not there yet

Metal Hellth

This app is generally good for its class, esp being free--not bombarded by ads, but I imagine that that will change. I would be completely fine with a paid version if they started added suggested plants, just NOT a paying member version. There is quite a community of gardeners where finding the more ambitious and adventurous growers is easy.

THE ONLY PROBLEMS with this app
1. There is a ton of redundancy in the plant list -- people take pics of their plants and post them as if on FB. And that's fine but if you're searching for a plant whose name you can't remember, that's a ton of extra scrolling. The "ALL" plants section is home base and the most popular, if there was a search option to scroll by plant name, that'd be great. Also,
2. Date search -- if you're searching for a plant whose name you can't remember, you'll probably remember the date you saw it. No way to search by date currently
3. is that for the 10 months I've had it, the Add Plant/Suggest Plant process leaves new additions in this Pending Approval status. I contacted their support in January reporting this. I understand if it took a 6 month turnaround, but going on 10 months, it’s officially ridiculous in my book. Original rating was 3 stars, now 2 stars

Your feedback is great. And we're working to address all of your suggestions. You can scroll by plant name if you go to search section, tap into the search box and type plant name. Once you select the plant from the search results, you will scroll through all the plants labeled with that name. I hope to circle back within a month with resolutions to your other feedback. Thank you for your contributions to the community. --Megan
