The sun and the earth have revolved to the relevant positions in space and spring, ladies and gentlemen, has definitely sprung. Here are some gardening apps to help with the season’s bloom.
Garden Pro, a $4 iOS app, is a reference app that can help you plan and manage your garden. Its main interface is an exhaustive list of flowers, herbs and vegetables, giving for each the common name, the botanical name and icons that indicate when the plant blooms and what type of water and light conditions it prefers.
Tapping on a plant takes you to a page with more information, including what type of soil it prefers and some basic care instructions. You can add the plant to a list of your preferred plants, which is a separate section of the app. In this section, you can program the app to remind you to do things like water — a reminder will pop up when a particular plant is due for a drink.
Landscaper’s Companion, $5 iOS and Android app, is slightly more professional in terms of detailed data, and a bit better organized . The plant database is arranged in classes like annuals, grasses, herbs and so on.
Each plant’s entry includes a short description, typical size, cultivation advice and pictures. But this app is more useful for experienced gardeners, and to add your own data and photos will cost an additional $7 via an in-app purchase.
If you’re new to gardening and have an Android device, you may like the Beginners Gardening Guide. It’s a free text-based app, jammed with useful information and imagery.
