Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Eden Garden Designer lets you create and share beautiful virtual gardens on your iPhone or iPod touch. Whether you are a seasoned gardener or just love to experience beautiful places, you’ll find Eden a delightful tool to use.
Start with one of the included, beautiful gardens, ready for planting, or create your own through your iPhone’s camera or photo library. You can even start with a picture of your own garden if you want to ‘design before you dig.’
Then choose a plant from the included Plant Library. This is stocked with forty beautiful, vivid photorealistic plants chosen from the favorites of North American and European perennials and annuals.
Many more plants are available for purchase in the Eden Garden Center, including special plant packs for feature gardens such as water gardens, rock gardens, Japanese gardens, English walled gardens etc.
The Plant Library is also a great tool for gardeners of all abilities. Search for plants by name, height, zone, colour, blooming season, sun exposure and type. Each plant has lots of useful information and has a custom wiki link to dig in for even more detail.
Once you have chosen your plant, simply tap on the garden where you want it to grow. Once in the ground, your plant comes to life in vivid, photorealistic colours and is animated by our custom algorithm to react to wind and other climate conditions. Listen to the sounds of the garden and enjoy your creation as bees buzz around your new blooms.
It’s easy to rearrange your garden by clicking on the move icon, or even get rid of plants by dragging them to the composter. Make as many gardens as you like with any combination of plants you can imagine. Enjoy your own private Eden.
Then share your creation with your friends and loved ones. Tap on the bouquet icon to send a picture to your friends on Facebook or save a snapshot to your photo library.
If you are just beginning or are a real green thumb, Eden Garden Designer lets you design beautiful gardens without having to learn expensive and complicated garden design programs. Eden is designed to be a delightful and useful tool for gardeners of all abilities and interests.

GARDEN CENTER: Get new plants and backgrounds by downloading themed plant packs from the Eden Garden Center.
SEASONS: Allows you to see what your garden will look like at different times of the year. Each plant has its own blooming times and so gardens will look different from early spring to late fall.
AUTO ZONE DETECT: Not sure what your exact hardiness zone is? Allow Eden to use your location data and each garden you set up can be in your exact zone. You can still set the zone yourself but this makes precise detection as simple as one touch.
FACEBOOK SHARING: Let your friends and loved ones enjoy your creations.
PLANT LIST: An easy way to generate a shopping list of the plants in your garden. Perfect for when you are at the garden center.

So Much Fun
I love this app. It makes me feel like a magician! I can't wait for more plants and garden decor.
What a great design tool
Very simple to use, great premise. A great option to consider would be the ability to hide/unhide the seasons view menu by just tapping the screen (once you've chosen the view).
Trees & shrubs
I love this app... I live zone 3 and although we get snow for a HUGE portion of our year, it'll be great to garden at that time, even if it is just on the web! Thanks for the inspiration; I've even used some of these plans for my own yard... Take care.
