Gardeners Supply and Green Mountain Digital announced today their new GardenMinder App for mobile devices. Available now on the App store, it includes everything needed to start planting a vegetable garden, including built-in reminders and how-to's.
"With the GardenMinder App, gardeners can carry an invaluable gardening resource — and more — along with them to their backyard," says Jim Feinson, president and employee-owner, Gardener's Supply. The GardenMinder App helps both new and experienced gardeners learn how to plan, maintain, and record the progress of their kitchen vegetable gardens with multiple, powerful features.
- A visual garden planner tool. Start with a pre-planned herb and vegetable garden or create your own using GardenMinder's built-in image and information library, which contains more than 50 of the most common vegetable types.
- Weekly alerts and 'Gardening Success Reminders.' Our weekly reminders are tailored to only the crops you grow and based on frost dates for your locations. Go through and check off your reminders as you complete them. Don't worry about checking the app -- you will receive an automatic weekly Push Notification to remind you of your upcoming garden activities.
- Easy-access to 'How-To's': GardenMinder's planting and care instructions, plus troubleshooting tips and a plant encyclopedia detailing the most popular vegetable crops, are easily accessible in the app.
- Create your own 'Personal Garden Journal.' Capture your garden in a journal with before-and-after photos, note planting progress, monitor growth and more on your own GardenMinder, personalized for your particular garden and plants. How-to's are linked in each reminder for easy access. You can tag each entry with a specific vegetable and share your success with friends via Facebook or email. This learning tool helps track your success for next year.
"Gardener's Supply is one of my favorite gardening resources for gardening gear and how-to information and the GardenMinder App helps gardeners from beginners to experts take the steps to have a successful and bountiful garden," says Charlie Nardozzi, author, Vegetable Gardening for Dummies.
"GardenMinder is a simple interactive app that allows you to plan and grow your own garden," says Charlie Rattigan, executive vice president of Green Mountain Digital. "The reminders and how-to's allow even the busiest gardener to be successful. It gives you the benefits and satisfaction of growing your own food."
GardenMinder is available through the App Store and is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. For more information, visit Gardener's Supply.
