Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Whether you have a massive garden plot, or just a few planters, growing produce is very satisfying as well as healthy.
We have created the most complete US gardening application in the app store, it will accommodate the enthusiastic gardener looking to grow their own produce or the novice gardener just starting out. It is a feature packed app that helps you track whats in your garden, keep notes along side each item in your garden with accompanying photos and even lets you search a photo filled encyclopaedia of hundreds of plant growing guides.
The application has the following features:
⁃ ability to add multiple types of the same produce, differentiating them by variety planted, enabling you to track how each individual variety is doing
⁃ an extensive range of growing guides for vegetables, fruit and herbs, giving detailed information on soil preparation, growing tips, harvesting and best varieties
⁃ to ensure you have a bumper harvest we have included a list of common problems that affect produce, giving information on how to spot the bugs when they arise and also how to treat them
⁃ ability to add produce to a favorites list, which is split into veg, fruit and herb categories
⁃ track whats in your garden by adding produce that you are growing and then save specific details about the produce, such as variety grown, amount of produce harvest, whether its been a success, date planted and number of days to harvest
⁃ ability to add multiple notes to each produce in your garden with an accompanying photograph, like a mini journal
⁃ to do list you can add 'to do' tasks, so next time you go to the garden centre you won't be racking your brains trying to remember what you came for!
⁃ lots of tips on growing produce, with more added all the time with each update
⁃ simple to use and fast
NEW features coming soon:
We'll be updating our app soon to have a plot planner. If there is an addition you would like adding, then please email us and we'll see what we can do.
NOTE: The sowing and harvesting times given and the recommended varieties are specific to the USA
What's New in Version 1.2
Version 1.2 has had the following changes:
It crashes often.
It lacks some plants which are important for anyone who grows herbs or vegetables like aloe, green onions/scallions, wheat grass, peppers and others.
It would had compensated these shortcomings by having an option of adding your own items in which you could include the information as well.
You can't reorganize the notes once you have entered them, only delete them. Yes, you can add a picture but it has no capacity of looking it at full screen, only a small thumbnail. It's ok and it would be perfect if these thing were included but certainly not worth $4.99. (the app icon and the opening page makes it look to feminine and childish, some more serious and elegant graphics would be great as well). Thanks for the efforts anyhow.
Knock knock, anyone there?
I wrote a positive review with suggested improvements last year but it was never posted. Even the reviews I see here are not getting averaged so users can see it on the main app page. The thing is, this is a great app and the only one of its kind. It's great that you can make progress notes with photos to track growth or failure as you go. The problem is that I lost all my painstakingly entered data when I had to restore my phone. All my other data from other apps loaded ok but not this one. If the developers are around, it would be great if there was some kind of response. This app has great potential but it needs some care and feeding. Now I am hesitant to use it at all.
A few reasons Garden Produce USA is the best out there....
This app serves as an amazing guide to gardening, and can be used as a reference when planting crops. It has more useful information compiled in one place related to vegetables and fruits than I've seen everywhere combined! For beginning, intermediate, and advanced farmers and gardeners, Garden Produce USA will come in handy. Thank you!
