Gro is now called My Garden and it is an app for the 21st century gardener. It inspires you with projects and gives you the information you need to turn that inspiration into action: creating your very own little spot on the Earth.
How does My Garden work? First, you tell us what you want – pick your preferences on the type of gardening you want to do. Then the app pulls info about your local conditions – location, temperature and season to give you the best ideas for plants and projects that you can successfully grow. And, just in case you find My Garden after you’ve already planted, the app can still help you monitor your existing plants.
By giving you step-by-step plans without all of the muss and fuss, we make growing easier and better for everyone.
Discover quick, high-success projects for what’s happening, right now. For example:
+ The perfect time for planting tomatoes without frostbite
+ Get the scoop on fail-proof plants to make your thumb green again
+ The flower that can resist drought
A container herb garden delivered to your door
My Garden identifies hundreds of different plants, both for decoration or to eat, that will thrive in your neck of the woods – how to plant them, care for them, and enjoy the fruits (or vegetables, or flowers…) of your labor. Plus you’ll get helpful reminders because plants don’t forget, but human beings do.
New this season, we’ve added a special section called Fresh Cuts. Since we’re always reading and writing about gardening life or collecting tidbits we find interesting about things that grow...we’d like to share the things we find with you to help keep you inspired in new ways.
Simplified login so you can now use your Scotts.com, Google or Facebook account to access the app.
Minor bug fixes and optimizations.
Ratings and Reviews
Apps good minus a few details
I love this app. It helps me with watering reminders. I just wish there were more plant varieties (which, I get it, are too many varieties for one app to hold bit a few more common ones would be great), my other complaint is that it doesn't notify you when its time to water your plants. It asks if I'll allow notifications and then it never notifies me so then I need to mark down when I need to water my plants so I remember and then I need to remember to go into the app to mark it off my to so list. It's a lengthy process. I also kinda wish the plants that get marked off would go to the bottom of the list so I can be looking at the next ones so I don't have to keep going in and out of the plants to see which one needs to be watered yet.
If I watered my snake plant, my pothos, and my aloe “every 2-3 days” they would all die. I hope people consult a different app or website before killing all the plants they just bought...
Good place to start for a new gardener
These ideas got me in my yard - I've got some thriving 4x4 vegetable gardens, some herb and flower containers on the patio, and a pretty good idea of what projects I'll repeat in the spring and which ones I'll skip. Planted some things I never would have tried before, specifically a couple succulents, and am shocked in my ability to keep them alive (I was clearly picking the wrong varieties before.) This is the first year that I've amended the soil and consistently fertilized (before, I really thought that was an optional waste of money- like gardening was more luck than planning) but dang - what a difference some nutrients can make! That was the difference between a garden not worth the effort in digging and one that i was proud of and didn't lose interest in mid-season. This year was definitely experimental for me, but I got a little bit of everything from the app.
