Gardening is supposed to be a time to unplug from the tech-heavy world we live in. And while that may be true to an extent, putting your phone to work for you and your garden can actually make the experience less stressful and your greenery more healthy.
Capital Garden Services and Tech Geek 365 are here to help you weed through the options, compiling a list of the only 8 gardening apps you really need.
For gardeners who need a little extra help planning out their plots, for instance, there's Garden Design Ideas, which provides users with an unending supply of garden decorating and design inspiration. Landscape and Garden Calculators, on the other hand, helps users estimate how much space they should leave between plants, and how much fertilizer is needed.
There are also options for plant lovers who need a little more information on the type of seeds they're planting, and how to optimize their growth. Gardenate,Vegetable Tree, Garden Time Planner, and Garden Manager: Plant Alarm all provide detailed information about different plant types, and the steps required to grow them.
Garden enthusiasts looking for climate-based information weren't forgotten either. Sun Seeker utilizes GPS to find the optimal planting spot for each seed, based on the sun's projected position during the season. On the other end of the spectrum, ColdSnap! Frost Alarm will alert users when the temperature is poised to fall, so they can take the appropriate measure to protect their plants.
