    "Your garden's best mate"


    Gardenate is a brilliant tool for helping you stay on top of your planting, particularly if you have a large plot. It has a wide array of information about vegetables, plants and fruits, including best planting conditions, locations, planting season, harvest times, compatible plants, and more.

    Simple to navigate, and with lots of features to help you keep track of your own plantings.


    Gardenate is very easy and intuitive to navigate by tabbing across the menu items at the top of the screen. Upon launching, you must choose your region, and opt for imperial or metric measurements.

    In your 'Wishlist', you can add intended plantings and include notes on where you plan on planting and the date, then set a reminder so you buy and bury your seedlings on time. 'Planting Now' is tells you which species you should be burying now according to your climate.

    In 'My Garden' you can track your plantings day to day, record locations, and set a harvest date, and there's also a diary where you can upload photos, make notes, and send documents to print as PDFs.


    The planting calendars included are specific to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, the UK, and the USA only. The full-screen ads which pop up are a bit irritating and inhibitive too.

    It is a good app and like being able to see what can be planted in a rotational system. However, i would also like to be able to record my perennials like my lemon tree etc. Not necessarily for harvesting but for fertilising reminders etc. I have most of my veggies in veggie box/crates and would like to be able to group my list by the box so i cam easily see what i have in one place.

    Hasn't been updated in 2 years. Doesn't sync properly and the interface is clunky. Also when searching for any plants, even common stuff like tomatoes, nothing shows up anymore. Looks like it's been abandoned or something. Was ok a few years Nah. Uninstalling.

    Easy to use. The reminder on the calendar is fantastic. Thank you for making my life just that little bit easier. ?

    Great but... Good because it is small, simple, easy, versatile, good value. BUT beware as SYNC is not automatic, so I will likely lose all my hard work if phone is damaged, changed or lost. I rely on my many apps to auto auto sync to Google as I am rather forgetful at times! :(

    It'd be wonderful if the app gave me the planting reminders, but for now, I need to be signed up for the email list. Also, would like to know the plants preferred pH, rather than a general "add lime" suggestion. Reminders and a way to keep track of fertiliser applications would be awesome. Gardenate is my favourite gardening app!! :)
