Growing Wisdom on the App Store on iTunes

Bizness Apps Inc.

Description

I created this app to give you information about your yards. I have been gardening nearly my entire life since my Grandfather gave me a package of tomato seeds and my Nana taught me about bearded iris. I want to combine my knowledge of horticulture with my love of weather to give you weekly information about what to do in your yard, that week.

If the weather is going to affect the garden, you will hear about it here first.

Over the years I have been fortunate to be able to put together my love of gardening and television into the forerunner of this app. For over three years I hosted Extreme Garden Makeover on WCVB in Boston and brought scores of weekly tips to viewers throughout the region. Now, with the ability to put video on an app, you can bring these video tips to you anywhere.
