Keep track of when you do things, or when things happen in your garden. Keep track of...
* Last frost date
* When you plant seeds
* When you transplant
* When plants bloom
* When you harvest fruits and vegetables
* When you prune trees
* When you first work the ground in spring

You decide what you want to keep track of.

Events that occur on a calendar day for any year are displayed in the table below the calendar. Clicking on a calendar day brings up all events for that day. Using the Query function you can query when a given event happens. For example, you could select the event as "Blooming", the Variety as "Apple", if you have many years of data you can see on which days you recorded Apple Blooming.


Release Notes:

Added the creation of an XML file of the database when the App exits. The XML file contains all the Events, Providers, and Calendar events in the database. This file is saved next to the existing CoreData SQL file. This file can be used to export the data into another program, it will also be used in a future version of GardenCal.

Updated the German language file to better describe some items. If there are any language issues, please let me know and I will correct them.

Review by FlowerFan

Works Great for Me! - I don’t understand the recent negative reviews for GardenCal. I was very hesitant to buy after seeing them, and now that I have purchased, I find the negative comments completely unfair. Firstly, I was charged exactly $1.99 and not the $10 someone claimed. It wasn’t easy to confirm what I actually paid because you have to find look at your iTunes account history to confirm an App store purchase. So maybe that buyer was confused by their own history. And anyway, if you are charged more than is listed, you should contact Apple immediately. Secondly, I contacted the developer with these concerns before purchasing and he responded with 24 hours which I think is quite good. He is listening and paying attention which is always a good thing. Thirdly, I find that GardenCal does exactly as it claims. I am a plant-aholic, and am always losing track of my plant purchases. I’ve tried all kinds of ePens, tablets and spreadsheets to try not to lose my plants in my 1acre plus ornamental plantings. I’m starting by testing GardenCal to track my bulb plantings for this year, so I now have a very nice entry of all the Varieties I planted on December 15th. I was able to put in the expected bloom dates as the Harvest Date. I could create the event “Fall Bulbs” and now can search for them that way. I could also create a list of Provders and that is another way to search for them. You can search with any combintation of Event, Variety, Name or Provider with checkboxes and limit that criteria to a date range if desired. I gave it only 4 stars because I would really like to see photos added. The developer is considering adding a mobile component, and if I could take a photo of my plants in progress and attach it to the plant in GardenCal the round trip between my computer and garden results would be complete. I’ll be entering my 150 plant rose garden next!
