    "Although flowerchecker isn't free, I still purchased it since it's one of the most helpful gardening apps for iphone. Didn't purchase it for myself though but for my grandma since she really loves planting. She's been struggling to identify unknown plants and flowers because it's not convenient for her to search the web. So far this app is so easyyy to use coz you just take a photo of the plant so it gets identified! 😀😀"

    "this is by far very useful to me because first off: it's a free gardening app. Secondly, I am learning a lot about plants when using this because there's a lot about soil we didn't know. And havin' a good soil is essential to keep a good plant. It really got me to discover several factors that harm plants and how to avoid them as well. Indeed a great gardening app."

    "I have developed a huge green thumb as of late and recently started my first garden. As new gardener, I run in to my fair share of issues. I found the Agrobase app while searching in the app store and I can say that I have several plants that if it wasn't for this app, would be dead. This app has allowed me to not only diagnose and treat some of my plants that I was having issues with, but also see pictures and help me identify the causes behind the illnesses. I can't wait to continue to explore the vast amount of knowledge that is available to me on this app. If you have a garden, download this one today!"


Gardening is never fun and is really boring to do, well, maybe for less than 10 people in the world. Verily, this has been, for a long period of time, a hobby of most people especially those in their elder years. It may be considered by most as a dirty, strenuous. and uncomfortable thing to do, but did you actually know that based on studies, gardening has several surprising health benefits? This kind of activity could improve your mental, financial, and personal relationships. Sources say a person who does gardening as a leisure pastime could be relieved and eased from stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems. But this, fellow, is not the only benefit you can gain from it. Jane Porter wrote an article in which a mere hobby of gardening turned Craig Jenkins-Sutton a millionaire! Probably you, yes you, could be the next pruning millionaire by just doing what you utmostly love. Though it is not really just about being rich. The fact that you can also earn from your passion is another level of satisfaction. If you want, you may also influence your family, friends, and anyone you know to start doing the same thus, improving your relationship with every one of them.

Look, we all may be belittling gardening somehow, but it is a worthwhile recreation for us. Why not try it out? You wouldn't lose anything if you'd try to garden right? Ask anyone for help or anyway, there are many gardening apps available for your mobile devices that can also guide you in starting a new found love, or even start small by having indoor plants inside your humble abode. All these would help you undoubtedly gain unfeigned wellbeing. Aren't we all in for that? Well, we hold the answer.

    "I moved to a state across the country from my old place. Though this would be a great help. Was very glitchy and mediocre at best. I did like the thorough list of the plant species and some of the other details, so when I got a prompt to upgrade and thought that would fix issues. Made it worse, no notable changes and now barely opens. Strongly recommend avoiding."

    "garden manager is a free app for gardening that's why it was the first app I downloaded on google play store. I just want to give it a try in order to help me keep my garden well taken care of.

    "I was watering my plants in my backyard when a neighborhood approached me to tell about this app. I am not into gardning and plants but my mom is, and I sometimes help to take care of the garden by simply watering them. Anyway, when my neighborhood told me about golden compass i thought it was a movie but no, it's a free gardening app with cool features like reminders for monthly care. Told my mom about this and she was amazed how helpful an app can be! 👍👍"

    "this isn't free but yes it's an amazing gardening app for iphone especially if you are managing a farm just like our family. We have many vegetable varieties on our farm that it's kinda difficult to track the progress of each and the time to harvest.
