Ratings and Reviews
I LOVE that this app has not stopped with just pictures, generalized care advice, and notes. That it also includes local weather, abundance of plant variety information and descriptions, harvesting and crop rotation information...💕💕💕. Oh, and did I mention how easy it is to navigate?! After trying out three other apps to find the perfect gardening companion (it's 2017, time to move up from an old fashioned planting journal and care binder), I'm THRILLED! If I could marry this app I would. I'm pretty sure my husband would understand.
Note to development: (This might be in there but I haven't seen it yet) I would love to see a way to share my garden info specifically with friends/family if I need to easily transfer that info for care when I'm on a trip though.
Also, the ability to set alerts for fertilizing various plants since they won't all need it at the same time! Help me kick the binder and hand-written calendar to the recycle bin (and save me from having to schedule multiple alerts into the phone calendar each time)!
Another nice feature would be multiple alerts/tracking for those that plant in succession.
App crashing even after latest update
This app is almost good, it’s a good idea but if only it would work properly. I haven’t been able to use it for months because it keeps crashing after I click on pretty much anything. It has some problems with keeping an accurate record of how long you have been growing your plants for, as it sometimes will randomly look as if it is reset with no notes but then later has your previous entries. The notes feature is a mess as well, it’s difficult to get something to save and you can’t select more than one picture at a time making it very time consuming to have to go back through your camera roll just for one note. And then you can’t even just add pictures, you always have to put a title otherwise it won’t save and won’t even tell you anything, just close, and then you have no picture. I’ll be switching to another app. I attempted to use it right now, it crashes, so I update it, which says that it has fixed the crashing issue that has only occurred for “a small amount of users”, and it still crashes just the same. Unbelievable.
My husband and I were talking on our way back from the nursery about about how cool it would be if a gardening app existed. Before even searching for one, we were talking about which features we could use in help us grasp how to care for all the varieties of vegetables we were planting for the first time. 10 minutes later I downloaded all the gardening apps I could find. This one by far is the best and is exactly what we are looking for. I plan on tracking our whole garden this season!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
