Technology has definitely helped many of us over the last decade, but the realms of mobile technology remain vast and somewhat unexplored. There’s just about an app for every conceivable business or pleasure requirement, but many of the latest additions are a definite must have for those of you who wish to produce the dream garden, but unfortunately lack the know-how or skills. What follows are some of the better gardening apps and technology aimed at both beginner and advanced gardeners:

Garden Plants Growing Guide

This is a free Android app and specifically focuses on how to grow, cultivate and care for certain garden plants. In fact, there are full instructions and beautiful photographs that will help you produce up to 75 of the most stunning herbs, flowers and vegetables.


Now this is an app that most avid gardeners would kill for. Koubachi is a Wi-Fi sensor that will monitor some of the most important aspects of plant care. Not only will this app oversee certain information such as soil moisture, correct lighting and temperature of plant care, it will also send notifications to your smartphone informing you of the type of care (and when) that is required.

Garden Guide

This guide is specifically aimed at those of you who enjoy producing a vegetable garden. It will provide a wide variety of tips and techniques on planting and growing vegetables. You will also be informed of other resources available to you to ensure that you produce some of the most mouth-watering and sought after vegetables ever.

Fruit Garden

Just as with the Garden Guide app, Fruit Garden is all about growing and cultivating the perfect fruits. It is available as an Android and iOS app and is once again aimed at both beginners and expert gardeners. You will be informed about how to prepare your soil, the best varieties of fruit, how to harvest, as well as a whole host of other great tips.

Click & Grow

Well with the introduction on numerous “Smart” gadgets, welcome to the smart gardener. Click & Grow allows you to grow and fertilise your plants without the need for personal care or even water. This is actually a flowerpot (of sorts) that includes a pump, batteries, sensors, a water reservoir, seeds and plant cartridges and certain software. Basically you can grow some of the most beautiful plants by simply adding batteries and filling the water tank once right after purchase.

Unfortunately, we aren’t all born with the knowledge and expertise on how to grow a beautiful garden. However, the garden can often be used for many different things. Some may choose to grow their own fruits and vegetables, whereas others look to entertain during the warmer months of the year by either firing up the barbeque or simply holding a garden party. If you happen to fall into any of these categories it’s likely you’ll want your garden to look as welcoming and beautiful as possible… and modern technology has made this even easier for you!
