I have thoroughly enjoyed using the SOW app for planting dates for my vegetable garden!! It can be used throughout Alabama for determining planting dates of both vegetables and fruits by simply selecting your county. This app uses science instead if old sayings. I have recommended it to several people and will continue to do. It also has other useful aides like asking an expert, gardening basics, and an app tutorial.

Won’t save my zone info

I love the idea here. I have referred to this app many times, but I always have to jump through all the beginner hoops to tell it what zone I’m in. I always click to save it, but it NEVER saves! So frustrating. I’d like to go further with it when I actually plant, but why bother? It never remembers me. Plz fix this bug. The app is super helpful!

I found this app about two years ago and it worked fine on my iPad 2. When it stopped working I called Auburn University. I was told that I had to have a new iPad with iOS 10.0 or better. In your app it says iOS 8.0 or better. I emailed Auburn again about 8.0 but never heard back. So, I ordered a new iPad with 10.0.
If it doesn't work I'm going to be on the phone again. The app is absolutely wonderful when it works. I'd give it one star for support, and five stars when it works.

By the way, this app works in Texas, you have to match a hardiness zone with Alabama.
