Can be improved
The overall idea of how this app is suppose to work is sound but it needs some improvements. Although there is a menu to sort your veggies, it doesn’t work. The veggie list doesn’t contain some commonly grown varieties such as leaf lettuce, snow peas, bush beans and Lima beans. You have to add them as custom veggies. The attributes for the custom veggies is written in German. It allows you to add the same veggie to your list twice without asking if that is what you want to do. You can’t group part of your garden and move it to another location in the plot planner. There is no undo button in the plot planner. And finally this app was advertised as being free but you have to buy access to all the veggies and the plot planner. Make these improvements and you have a great app.
Lovely idea. There are a couple things that need to be improved . The language in the section to add your own plants is not in English and not in Spanish. I’m guessing German. The plants preinstalled are general and not correct for companion planting like... kale and onions are friends, this app says neutral, but then on the planner is shows up as not compatible. Also it would be nice for the planner to populate the best place to put the plants. I thought I would enter that I have 72 tomato plants and 28 kale and 52 cucumbers, then the app would make a suggestion According to the information on hand. Nope. You definitely have to plan it just like in paper. I also hope we can change the zone in future updates. I’m in zone 5, so parts of the app are not useful for me. Otherwise great concept.
Some Limited Herbs and Vegetables, otherwise great App!!
The app is easy to use and allows you to build your plots with names. Also, you can add vegetables and herbs, but you need to research seeding, transplant, and harvest time along with sun, water, and if it depletes nutrients. One very important features is what it grows well with and what should be avoided. In the plot view as you drag and drop veggies and herbs onto the plot, a heart or lightening bolt show up, allowing you to reposition the plant. After you build your list for “My Vegetables “ a calendar view can be selected for all your seeding and planting dates. Basil, Chives, Dill, Rosemary, Parsley, Sage, Thyme are the only Herbs included. Oregano, Shallot, and Scallions are not included, but you can add them. I bought both the premium versions as I’m planting a combination of 27 vegetables and herbs in three raised beds, a herb garden, and ten grow bags. This app is great! I would like to share or sync with my iPad and iPhone.
Nice app if you buy the add-ons
I downloaded the free app to plan my veggie beds. I had to pay an additional $2.20 twice ($4.40 total) to get to the point where I could access additional types of veg I wanted and customize the beds and save them. I love the feature that shows what plants “play nicely” together, it makes laying out the beds so easy. For 5 stars they need to expand the list of veg you can select, provide more in-depth planting and seeding advice for each veg type, and just charge $2.99 right up front - because the app isn’t very useful without the add-ons.
Needs more veggies and different zones
This app is great and is really useful but they need more veggies. I think the app also needs to have an option where you can change the zone. Zones determine when you should be planting a specific plant. Examples are like if you live in Florida , your zone is very different than if you live in Michigan and why you may plant in Florida in December you cannot plant in Michigan in December. I think that would be a key feature to add to this app but overall really helpful
Limited vegetable and herb list. Cannot edit a plan or delete it. That is, once you have set your dimensions, you cannot adjust them. I would recommend an app that gives more choices. However, this one is easy to use. Don’t waste your money paying for the additional vegetable list. It isn’t much better than the free version. It doesn’t include a lot of common vegetables like certain greens, sweet potatoes, asparagus, etc. Add more veggies & herbs please!
Needs more veggies, plot options & zones
Not even a single squash on the list, we’ll...squash family but not winter or summer squash options. Can’t change the zone. Works great if you’re in....Seattle I think? Limited veggies, strawberry the only fruit. Only allows one big plot, not the option for multiple (like most raised beds) so you have to save each bed individually. Partially my fault for purchasing without digging into it much but at least it was a good price. Like the beneficial/harmful options for companion planting.
I got a pop-up that offered to buy access to the app at a discounted price for a limited time only. I decided to purchase the app, but it was only access to the extra veggies, but not the patch planner. You can’t really use one without the other, so I really don’t understand why they are offered to be purchased separately! And it was not a limited time price, it’s always the same price. Purchasing access to the whole app isn’t much money and I would have happily done so, but since I thought I was getting a good deal, now I feel cheated and I don’t want to use the stupid thing anymore.
Has real potential, but limiting
I’ve been using the app for a few weeks now, and it has great potential, hence the 3stars. Pretty easy to use and fair starter crop names. But...... 1) it would be nice to see the plan in it’s entirety, not just by section. And to be able to edit the sizes without having to create a whole new one. 2) more vegetables, herbs and companion plants would be nice. The list is too small. Yes you can add a custom plant, but library itself should be better for a paid app. 3) you have soil depletion data but not water needs? Or is that just a bad translation? 4) last but not least, you have a tiny disclaimer saying that zones are set to USDA 7-8..... and that users should adjust mentally accordingly. Really??? Bottom line...... lazy developer, decent app but unless revamped, will not be useful going forward.
The idea is fantastic. Being able to see companion plants is great! But this is quite useless if we can’t pick our zone. I’ll have to keep referring back to the seed packets or the internet so I’d be doing twice the work. Since I can’t change the zone, I didn’t bother buying it. The demo garden plot was lacking in features (not able to add flowers, shrubs, etc) and I couldn’t change the size of it. Not sure if that’s available in the full version or not. If we could change our hardiness zone then I would be happy to buy it!
App Fails to Purchase
App fails to process payment. Had to try a dozen different times to get the app to process the upgrade. It would just bring a prompt, “Purchase failed. Something went wrong try again later.” After multiple attempts it finally went through, that app works great! Love it! Wish it had more options and ability to plan multiple beds at once.
Small Plant Inventory, Waste of Time and Money
Do NOT spend ANY money for this app. They have an extremely limited list of plants (Fruits, Vegetables, Herbs). I paid $3.99 for the “Patch Planner” but I cannot even plan out my garden as it does not even have the majority of the very common garden plants that I am growing! Horrible app simply because of the extremely limited plant inventory. I want my money back! I am incredibly disappointed. This app is unusable without a proper inventory. I have a variety of over 35 types of common, everyday fruits, vegetables, and herbs in my garden and this app maybe covers 5 of them... it is absurd.
I’m kind of disappointed at the selection of vegetables on this app. I am planting many of the ones they have listed but there are still a lot missing that I want to plant this year. Also, you should just go ahead and make your app paid if you are going to charge for the plot planner and then a separate fee to unlock the rest of the vegetables. I won’t be using this app because I already have my first bed planned out perfectly I just needed it for my second bed. It’s a waste of money and I would like a refund.
Info for German Climate only
Nowhere in the description does it say that plant and harvest times are based on German climate only (yet it’s available in the US App Store??). There’s no way to customize the app for your local climate. The free version has info for only 12 uncommon veggies; for $1.99 you can unlock info on a meager list of additional veggies but it’s definitely not worth it. The app is still pretty new so maybe future updates will add more features but as of today, it needs a lot of work!
This app is complete junk. It was a waste of $4. The vegetables are pretty limited which didn’t bother me that much. The garden planner is a complete waste of time. I have 20 IBC totes that have been cut in half as raised beds that I was trying to organize. I thought this app would be a solution but it functions like a 3rd grader developed it.
