High-tech meets gardening with a new iPad app that makes it simple to design the perfect vegetable plot. Garden Plan Pro is the easy way to draw vegetable beds, add plants and create the perfect layout for any space.
Garden Plan Pro builds on the timesaving features of the award-winning GrowVeg.com Garden Planner, which has over 100,000 users worldwide. Using an extensive database of plants and weather stations it recommends the best planting dates for your area and can send email reminders of when to plant, based on your plans.
Unlike other gardening apps, Garden Plan Pro works with any shape of garden or plot. Whether you plant in traditional rows, raised beds, or using the Square Foot Gardening method, it calculates exactly how many plants can fit into the space you have. Its intelligent features assist with crop rotation and make it simple to plan succession planting month-by-month to maximize your harvest.
“Gardeners want to be able to walk around their garden or plot as they plan the crops they are going to grow,” says Jeremy Dore, creator of the original Garden Planner at GrowVeg.com. “We realized that the iPad is perfect for taking notes in the garden, changing the layout of raised beds, or browsing Grow Guides for each plant.”
Users of the desktop version can synchronize their plans with Garden Plan Pro, and plans can be shared with friends and family by email or on popular social networks. With an iPhone version coming later in the year, Garden Plan Pro is a truly ‘ground-breaking’ app!
Garden Plan Pro is available on the AppStore™ starting January 2012 for $19.99.
