Editors' reviewThis 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 Seed Program for Windows is a database system for garden seeds. Use it to help organize your seeds--keep track of what seeds you have purchased, where they are from, how old they are or what seeds you need to buy. The program will print a planting schedule for the seeds you have entered, so you know exactly when and how to plant all of your seeds. The database includes extensive information for a wide variety of vegetables and herbs.
