ABC Vegie Guide is an essential tool for all vegetable gardeners – from the novice to the experienced - to help you find out what vegie should be planted when, no matter the climate zone you’re in. ABC Vegie Guide will give you all the information you need to produce healthy crops throughout the year, including growing tips, pest and disease control pointers and harvest guides.
In your ‘Patch’ you can keep a running record of notes about what’s going on in your garden. You can keep track of what you planted and when, take photos & make notes on progress and be prompted when your plants should be ready to harvest.
What's New in Version 1.0.5
* Fix determination of climate under iOS 7
* Scrolling performance improvement
* Fix cosmetic bug when planting from plant info view
Useful but missing important feature
Really like this app except it is missing a really important feature ... the only way to remove something from your "patch" is to say "harvest" ... except all gardeners know there are always FAILS!! And learning from what doesn't work in your garden is really important (and the timing etc). Would be rated 5 if I could indicate which seeds/plants didn't work out.
Handy for a green thumb
The simplicity and usefulness of this app cannot be understated. I adore it! It lets me track progress and the plant variety is brilliant, with great supporting information.
To improve it:
1. Being able to indicate successive plantings - when new seeds of the same species are planted
2. The ability to have multiple 'patches' so that when I 'harvest' a plant, it goes to the archive and I can start another 'patch'
3. Similar apps have a first stage before plant and harvested: germination period. This would really help me to know when seeds have failed.
4. More information on plant nutrient requirements.
5. Reminders about when to feed.
Great app for novices
Just wish you could share your patch with another user as there are a few of us who attend to our patch.
Would be good if the chart also included when the seedling is likely to appear (info is thevegetable profile, so not too bad)
All in all a very useful app
