Reap What You Sow With This iPhone App

October 14, 2009 by


Americans are getting back to agrarian basics as they did during the Great Recession. How to make the most out of little? As Michelle Obama recommends–grow your own garden! ? And that?’s exactly what more and more Americans across the country are doing. And they are getting lots of help from some unexpected, high-tech sources–namely Apple.

Last month, Botanical Interests, a Colorado-based home gardening seed company, released an iPhone application that educates people on how to grow their own food, complete with beautifully detailed illustrations of 300 varieties of vegetables. Developed by green technology specialists from Netframes, the Botanical Interests application provides:

• Online and phone customer support for specific gardening questions.
• A 5% coupon on first seed purchase.
• Detailed growing information: Where and when to plant, unique sowing and germination needs, and harvesting instructions.
• Special app sections, including Favorites, multi-criteria Search, and growing/harvesting Tips & Tricks.

$5.99 at the Apple store.
