No backup?? This app served my purposes well enough. It is a little backwards in that each time I open it, I have to go in and make the labels visible. Worse than the limited user-friendliness, however, is that I have upgraded to a new phone and have discovered that the app saves no memory of my garden bed information from my previous phone. With 72 total square feet of garden space, I'm a little miffed about this and will now Seek a different app that allows data backup.
Best Sq. Ft. for Android Two drawbacks: Awful plant illustrations and limited configurations of plants per square that may not match how you plant -- beans are 8 -9 per square, not 4 like the picture. The plant info is limited and not really worth it. Combined with Gardroid Premium, I have a good record of my efforts. Now, if I could put the two together, with better graphics, I'd have a nearly perfect app. (There is a Sq. Ft. Garden app, but it only runs on the iPhone and Kindle.)
Works great It is a basic visual aid for a square foot garden. The only criticism I have is that the length of the bed should be unlimited sense the only real restriction on the dimension of the beds according to the SFG method is that it with is no greater than four feet wide. Mel does of course say that he doesn't recomend it be longer than fifteen feet. But he also says that if your landscape has a long walk way that bordering it with 3 foot wide beds is a great use of space.
Not for row gardens: Great for square foot gardening!! You can add name of any plant, but would love more plant iconspics/plants per square guides
Fair It could use a lot of features. I used Garden Tracker on my iPod touch and that's a lot closer to what I'd be looking for in this type of app. A few suggestions: A plant database. It should include fields for plant category (vegetable, flower, herb), planting requirements (time, distance, depth), harvesting requirements and results, sun, etc. Ability to add/edit/delete multiple plants at the same time, not just copy/paste one at a time. Very tiresome to add the same plant 8 times. I'm out of room...
Very Basic Probably good for the small space gardener but didn't meet my needs for a larger square foot garden.
Rename Bed option added to menu.
Replaced note field for individual square plots.
fixed orange dots bug.
Keep your vegetable garden growing with cultivation details for 90+ plants
