    Thanks for the list – there’s a couple of new gardening apps that I hadn’t tried. My favorite so far didn’t make your list: Landscaper’s Companion. It’s $4.99, but has the largest catalog of plants that I’ve found so far. Another good one for growing vegetables is Essential Garden Guide – a steal at 99c.
