Last year when we moved into our home, in our backyard sat a small garden that was growing a tomato plant and pepper plant. I had tried gardening in the past, with no luck. Maybe buying a home with a garden would be the answer?
My excitement lasted about a month. Between the kids and the dog, our small garden was destroyed. We now have the outline of a garden, with dirt and a few weeds — the plants, are gone for now …
This year, I am determined to make that garden grow. I’ve rounded up several gardening apps that can hopefully help a brown thumb turn green.
Garden Squared for Android
The Garden Squared app assists you with planning and tracking your gardens. Select your dimensions in square foot plots and keep track of what is planted where, along with journal entry and task tracking.
Garden Plan Pro
Using data from over 6,500 weather stations, Garden Plan Pro recommends planting and harvesting dates in your area. You can receive easy reminders about what to plant when, as well as plan your garden with flexible drawing tools. This gardening app also helps by helping you space your plants appropriately so that you get the most from your plot.
Garden Time Planner
The Garden Time Planner app is brought to you by Burpees (a garden supply retailer). This free app lets you name your garden, list what you are planting and it will create a handy to do so you know what to plant when. Within the app is a full database of plants, weather and how to garden videos.
The iGarden app will help you know when to harvest your crop. It will give you climate-specific planting instructions, inform you of known pests and remedies, as well as add custom seed information and photos.
Garden Tracker app helps you plan and plant your vegetables and track your garden’s progress. You can also track days to harvest, as well as water and fertilizer schedule. You can also upload your gardens to your Dropbox account, as well as upload and download to other devices.
