Customer Reviews

Takes forever to pick plants


Have to click way to many times to pick a plant. Also, the flexible garden space isn’t intuitively flexible. I don’t want to spend hours clicking and trying to figure out how to work the app. It’s a waste. Wish I could get my $8 back.

Great idea, terrible execution


I loved this app when using it on my iPad. I agree with other users that it's not quite as customizable as it claims to be, but I didn't mind so long as I could plan out my beds. And yes, the dragging function is VERY SENSITIVE, but you get used to it.

Ok, so for the PROs: very cool that you can not only select the type of plant, but that they also had a lot of the most popular varietals for each in the app. So if you were doing bush pickling cucumbers you knew you'd need more space than the climbing, etc. I also liked the info provided for each plants, as well as the companion planting suggestions. And I LOVED that I could not only print my plans, but could also print out a list of the plants and total count for each. And the tips around thinning, transplanting and preserving were cool too.

Now, the CONs: OMG I SPENT DAYS BUILDING MY PLANS AND THEN THEY FREAKIN DISAPPEARED!!! It was my second year using the app, first year had no problems (much smaller patio garden too). The second year, new house with a huge backyard. Very involved plans. Gone. All gone. POOF. To their credit, the app support team tried to be helpful but were unable to retrieve the info. I almost cried. So with that, I uninstalled. Too much time spent on something that went poof all do to buggy script 😩

Glitchy, needs work


This was helpful in making sure I gave each plant the proper amount of root space; it's something that I tend to skimp on. I like the app but some of the features are hard to use, even with the manual's guidance. The app just doesn't work as smoothly as the guide suggests. Some items seemed to be unable to be manipulated after creating them. The delete button on the garden overview panel does not actually work. It would be nice to get rid of old/waylaid plans. I'd also like to be able to rename plans if I change my mind about the original name. I'd also like to see other seed catalogs included, granted they cooperate, like Sow True Seed. I do like how the newsletter gives me a reminder of what planting/seeding phase the plants in my plans are currently in. Please consider changing the issues, it would make the app so much more wonderful
