Skippys Flower and Herb Planting Calendar
By Katherine Martin
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This easy-to-use app creates a personalized calendar for planting flower and herb seeds, based on the average last spring frost date in your garden. It originated on Skippy’s Vegetable Garden blog and has been tested and used world-wide by over 50,000 agricultural students and home gardeners. Skippy’s Vegetable Garden is an award winning blog: awarded Best Garden Blog by Horticultural Magazine and currently the # 1 “Vegetable Gardening Blog” on Google search.
If you plant seeds, this app will help you. It can be hard to get planting time from a seed packet. You have to count backwards using the days to maturity number and your frost dates to figure out the calendar date. With several seed packets, this gets confusing. Skippy's App solves this.
Skippy's Flower and Herb App is designed for gardeners all over the world. It is effective anywhere with four seasons, a cool winter, and average first and last frost dates. Through research and our own experience, we've collected data for the optimum planting times for over 50 flowers and herbs. The app does the work of creating planting calendar and lists sowing, thinning, transplanting, and succession planting dates.
The app is easy-to-use and practical. It’s add-free. No in-app purchases. No silly distracting graphics. And it’s actively supported by gardeners with regular updates. If you have a question or suggestion, you can email us.
How does it work? Select flowers and herbs you want to grow. Add your garden’s average last spring frost date. The app will create a calendar for your chosen plants. You can view your planting tasks by the week or scroll through the entire season. Once set up, the app opens to display the current week with your current planting tasks.
Give it a try. We're sure that Skippy's App will simplify your seed sowing.
