While many of us would like to use our gardens to grow fruit and vegetables, only a limited number are sufficiently green fingered. The problem that faces many potential gardeners is knowing where, and when, to start. The Grow Your Own iPhone app is produced by The Royal Horticultural Society and has been designed to offer assistance to gardeners of all levels of ability.
After inputting some information about your gardening experience, the amount of space you have available and how much time you have to dedicate to your garden, the app will suggest fruit and vegetables that you may want to grow.
The app also provides information about what needs to be done, how and when and there is a wealth of advice on hand to ensure that you get the best possible crop. With information about potential problems such as disease, you'll be equipped with everything you need to know to run a successful garden.
If you don't have the seeds you need to get planting, you can buy direct from the RHS web site and you can access the Grow Your Own forum to exchange tips and ideas with other gardeners. Whether you're looking for help getting started in the garden or would like advice about how best to treat particular fruit and vegetable, this is a great app.
