The Seed Program

CNET Editors' review

This application is on the plain side, but it lets you easily track seed inventory and offers useful crop and planting information to make your garden a success. The Seed Program's utilitarian interface has but a few options to add seeds to your inventory, view and modify crop selections, and access planting and inventory reports. There are 24 plants included, from Alpine Strawberries to Leeks, with planting time and directions shown for each. Look under Hints to find a well-written, concise description of the plant with useful growing and harvesting information. You can only view hints once crops have been added to your seed inventory, and there's a five-seed limit with the trial version. Reports include a Planting Schedule with plant names only or with directions included, and you can build any report you want with the Custom Report tool. The Seed Program's no-frills approach makes it easy enough for any gardening enthusiast to manage seed inventory and planting schedules.

    "The Only Program of its Kind"

    January 28, 2007  |   By carbondating

    Version: The Seed Program 3

    Pros

    As this seems to be the only program offering garden planting organization and scheduling, I'm glad it's as good as it is. The first thing to do when you get it is to input the dates of the first and last frost in your area. From there, you input the information about every seed you plan to plant, and TSP keeps them organized - you can print out a planting schedule that lets you know what to plant how and when. You can even customize this report to get all the information you find most useful. It's helped me stay on my toes about starting seeds as early as possible to be sure to get in a long and productive growing season.

    Cons

    The biggest problem I've encountered with this program is that printing out your planting schedule is an all-or nothing deal; if your printer jams up midway through, and you only need the last four pages of the report, you'll have to either reprint the entire schedule or "print" to PDF and use Acrobat Reader to select the pages you need.

    A minor irritation with the program is the lack of any sort of resources to find the frost dates in your area - these were surprisingly hard to find on Google. A utility within the app to input your zip code would be nice, but a link to a decent website offering this information would suffice.

    Another minor irritation has been that the Maintain Crops screen makes it easy to accidentally delete information about crops when trying to add a seed not in the included database.

    In a perfect world, this program would receive periodic updates via internet with a broader crop database, but the program is very helpful as-is.
