The 2019 Vegetable Garden Planner is live—and it’s even better than ever! With our free Garden Planner trial, you can plan a garden plot right on your computer—whether it’s a square-foot garden, a raised bed garden, a kitchen garden, or any garden you can imagine. It calculates planting dates based on your local climate, shows how many plants will fit into a given area, tells you how many seeds you need, and more!
The online Garden Planner also produces a printable planting calendar, sends you reminders of when to sow and plant, and even helps with crop rotation—telling you which plants to rotate to avoid pests. It’s easy to use, using colorful plant icons, and you can even create multiple garden designs if you wish. Overall, you’ll save time and have a more productive garden!
