How will you celebrate Earth Day this year? A great way to commemorate Earth Day at home is to start a garden. You can use your smartphone with an app or two to help you have a successful gardening adventure.
To help you figure out what you want to plant in your garden and the optimum planting times for your area, check out the Garden Time Planner from Burpee. This app tells you when to sow seeds or transplant and has a large database of plants, where you can learn about their requirements, watch how-to videos and more!
Once you have purchased your tomatoes or petunias, download Landscape & Garden Calculators. This handy garden app tells you how far apart to plant what you’ve purchased, how much fertilizer to use, how much mulch you need, etc.
You want to be sure to stay on top of the watering regimen for a bountiful garden. The Garden Manager Plant Alarm lets you set alarms that remind you to weed, water and care for your garden.
