New GardenMinder(TM) App Guides You From Planting to Harvesting

Starting a Food Garden? Mind Your Peas & Cukes and 50 Other Crops With Help From Gardener's Supply

BURLINGTON, VT -- (Marketwire) -- 03/23/12 -- Gardeners Supply and Green Mountain Digital announced today their new GardenMinder™ App for your smart mobile device including iPhone, iPad, iPod, Nook and Kindle Fire. Available now on the App store, it includes everything you need to start planting a vegetable garden, with built-in reminders and how-to's.

Carry your entire garden plan and an extensive vegetable gardening reference guide on your smart mobile device. 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 including:

  • 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.
