HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – The last frost of the spring has passed (we hope) in the Tennessee Valley and that means it’s time to get out and get to work in the garden.
If you’re looking for some helpful advice, you can always head down to the local nursery. Or you could whip out your smartphone. Here are some apps to make the most of your green thumb:
Garden Compass – Great for those needing the basics, like what season a plant blooms in or how much light it needs. The companion webite also connects you with local experts for advice or help finding products you need. The app is free at Apple’s App store.
Garden Time Planner – Keeps you on a schedule, which is handy if you have multiple varieties of plants to tend to. Just load in the vegetables, herbs or flowers you’re working with and a checklist tells you what actions to take throughout the year. The app is free at Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
iScape – A simple app to help you visualize the design of a garden or yard. Just snap a photo of the area you’re working with – then add details like flowers and fences. Add-on features will cost a little extra but the basic version is free. The app is free at Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
