Having your own patio or backyard garden can be a great way to supplement your groceries, but not everyone has the green thumb necessary to make it work. Knowing what to plant and when to plant it is not common knowledge for the novice gardener. And that’s what makes SproutRobot so great — it takes the guesswork out of gardening.
SproutRobot is an online resource that provides users with growing calendars, based on their location, that indicate which vegetables to plant and when, and also gives gardening tips for each vegetable. The basic service is free, but for a yearly fee ($19.99 for a patio garden, $39.99 for a small garden, and $59.99 for a family garden) SproutRobot will not only provide you with a growing calendar, but will also send seeds and instructions in the mail whenever it’s time to plant.
So give it a try — type in your zipcode and get your garden ready for the fall planting season.
