Not much in the data base
The structure is there but not much data base. A fraction of what it should be for the price. I took a chance and bought this. The downfall of apps. You never know really what your getting. They make you make your own data base so you do the work of filling it out. Looks like they also abandoned this app as the last update was a year ago. Shame. Don't waste your money.
Excellent but could be perfect with improvements
Love many things about the app. However it doesn't help us when we plant other than from seeds. I wish we could also choose how many inches a plant is and do the same timeline. Also it says which plants are incompatible so i wish when we clicked to add them to the garden it would automatically group compatible plants together or seperate the non-compatible ones so if we have several boxes it would help us more easily plan it out. I like how it shows the insect threats to each plant. If it cant tell us harvest time except from seed maybe it could tell us average time for seed to sprout or reach a certain height so we can manually change the calendar to know harvest time when planting young plants rather than seeds. Love how it knows my zone from zipcodes... Also planting time is wrong if not using seeds so perhaps another section of the app could be for planting from other than seeds
This is an attractive Ap, well organized easy to use. It only covers basic vegtables and minimal information on those. Only allows recording of date planted, no way to record other information.
What I would like to see in the future:
•A place for notes, a way to record fertilizing schedules and problems such as insect infestations, harvest yeilds late freezes, etc.
•Advice on fertilizing and insect control for each plant, both chemical and organic solutions.
•Options for diferent gardening styles. With the organic/ green movement, Intensive Gardening is a must for many new city dwelling gardeners!
•Advice for which plants should be started in flats and which do best seeded directly into the garden. If the plant will do well if planted in pots (and recomended pot size).
•Care information: when to thin, when to stake, pinching back, signs of problems, etc. specific to plant.
•Appropriate watering advice/schedule for zone/season/soil type. Including if plants love water on leaves or if this will create a problem.
•Reminders/alarms so care items are not missed.
•It would be great if this Ap could work with a weather service using zipcode and keep a record of weather fluxuations during period between planting and harvest.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
