Gardening is a wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors while growing your very own healthy foods. Planning can be fun, but it can be quite challenging. The GrowVeg Garden Planner promises to make planning easier and maybe even fun.
Maybe you have played one of the online farming games. This is a bit like that, but much more practical. In fact, the end result will land on your real dinner plate!
The Garden Planner lets you draw out your vegetable beds, add plants and move them around to get the perfect layout. You may choose to use metric units or US measurements (feet/inches) and any shape of garden can be created. The planner will allow you to plan traditional rows, raised beds, or even square foot gardens. The database has over 200 vegetables, herbs and fruit and provides detailed growing information. Customized varieties can be added with their own spacing and planting dates. It is that versatile.
As you add your plants, the planner shows you the space they require by a colored area around each plant. It also calculates how many plants will fit into the area. Most of us like to rotate crops to help control bug populations and provide optimal nourishment for the plants; the Garden Planner warns you where you should avoid placing each vegetable based on what was in your previous years’ plans.
Gardening in New York State is much different than in Florida. The Garden Planner adapts to your own area using a database of over 5000 weather stations.
When you are happy with the plan, print your planting chart showing how many of each plant you require and when to sow, plant and harvest them. The Garden Planner makes sure it is all perfectly planned!
But it doesn’t stop there. Twice a month the Garden Planner sends email reminders of what needs planting from your garden plans. It will organize which crops follow others using the succession planting feature and lets you see what your garden will look like for each month of the year.
And as your plants grow, you can add notes to track how they grow. The Garden Planner is very easy to use and as a lot to offer as you plan each year’s crops. Better than the online farming games, you will be enjoying fresh veggies and fruit from your own well planned garden!
