not worth 4.99 at all...just buy a good gardening book in the bargain bin at B&N

:
I am a new gardener and this was too basic even for me and my few raised beds and pots of veggies, fruits and herbs. I have great eyesight but the pics of the 'pests' for each plant were TINY and there was no information on anything beyond bugs such as fungus. There is no info on what behaviors bring out these bugs or diseases such as improper soil balance, weather or planting companions as is there is limited dialog on what to do if these pests show up beyond naming some pesticides.

Also, there is absolutely no info on how to prune or pick fruits/veggies from plants other than the wiki (which is horribly basic in some cases); Really, I could CARE LESS about the history of the squash. Kind of lame to lean on a wiki link instead of entering the info on your own. Proper picking and pruning can really make a difference in the appearance/health/production of most plants. I believe for consistency this info should be hand added vs. leaning on an inconsistent link like wiki. I could go to wiki for FREE.

VERY LIMITED in fruits. I could not find blackberries or raspberries. I would think this would be very common. I don't know if the list sorts out only by your zone but I know that both grow fine in my zone during this time frame and were not on the list.

Some have said this has potential but I worry about what it was like at the inception since I'm getting the latest update. It has a VERY LONG WAY to go to be useful to even the most basic of gardeners.

I would need the following:

* Stop leaning on wiki for info, it's inconsistent, enter info from truted sites here in tab form (planting times, care guides, diseases/pests, pruning/picking)
* The update said there was info for those who did not grow from seeds; I have yet to find this!
* Discussions around diseases as well as bug pests and several resolutions and possible gardener-inflicted causes (overwatering, soil ph, fertilizing errors)
* Green options for pest/disease control as well as ferilizing
* Maybe a discussion forum sectioned by zone and plant to see what others are experiencing out there
* A disease/pest dictionary where you can view pics of several leaves/fruits that are damaged, match them up with damage occuring in your garden and then find out what it is

There are no highly rated gardening apps out there that I could find and I chose this one strictly b/c the description seemed to be everything I needed. If the creators could fix theese errors then this could be a great app but as it is it's worthless in it's current form.

4/5 stars

Great app the first year

:
But no way export notes, dates planted, varieties, etc. from year to year, so you lose the power of record keeping. Other than that, an excellent app.

0/5 stars

Too basic

:
Agree with other review. Way too basic and I'm a novice gardener. Some of the information contradicted other sources so I question the accuracy.
