My Online Garden

As of 2019, I am subscribed to not one, but two, virtual gardens. Both allow me to upload pictures of my plants, give me all the details I’d ever want, and then send me reminders of what garden tasks need to be done. The only trouble is that I’ve got so much gardening to do that its not easy to find the time to update everything online. There is one bit that is being updated regularly…. It’s my 2021 Seed Sowing Records.

Having two subscriptions is rather expensive so I will very likely choose one over the other as some stage.

1. Shoot Gardening: This one is available via their website, and adding garden plants is easy. Monthly reminders are sent to ensure I care for my plants correctly. My entire garden is viewable here.

2. Garden Tags: This is available as an app on my phone, and is very user-friendly. I can very quickly add a new plant to my virtual garden. There is a terrific interaction between users that Shoot does not have. Plant tasks are given at all times.

Both services offer a basic and a premium option. Even with the basic, it is possible to search for detailed information about any plant.
