We have some exciting additions to announce about our award-winning Vegetable Garden Planner program and our new Grow Planner iPad app. If you haven’t yet heard about or tried these cool programs, click on the links in the previous sentence to go to complete info pages. In a nutshell, these programs help you plan and design your vegetable garden, ultimately helping you grow more food. You map out what you want to grow (choosing from more than 140 crops), and the programs tell you how many of each plant you can fit in an area and when you need to plant each crop based on your ZIP code. The computer-based version and our new app have received praise from beginning and veteran gardeners, who often comment on the time they save by using these tools.

Here are some of the recent additions and improvements we’ve made to the Vegetable Garden Planner and Grow Planner app:

New Seed Company Catalogs 

We’ve recently integrated more seed company catalogs into our garden planning tools. We already had these existing seed suppliers in our planners: Territorial Seed, Jung Seed, R H Shumway, Totally Baker Creek Seed Company CatalogTomatoes and Vermont Bean Seed Co.

We are very excited to now include some of our favorite companies: Johnny’s Selected Seeds, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, High Mowing Organic Seeds and The Tasteful Garden.

There are now more than 10,000 varieties and descriptions included in the planner! When you’re using the Garden Planner and want to know more about varieties of a particular crop, double-click a plant, click the + button next to the variety list, and then hover over the information button for any variety to learn more. From the Plant List, you can also select which seed company you’d like to order from, and then click the “Buy” button to be taken straight to the catalog page on the supplier’s website.
