Gardener's Journal Premium

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Better suited for the compost pile, this program is too stubborn a tool to be useful for any busy gardener with a thriving garden to tend. While there are few programs in the market that are geared specifically for gardening, there's not much to Gardener's Journal Premium that should attract those with the green thumb. The program is basically a glorified diary set up as a series of forms into which you are supposed to log your entries. Entries are organized by date, and different sections let you enter details about the weather, or invoices (if someone's paying you to weed, for example.) The program itself is very large, and takes a long time to download. What's more, during testing we ran into a series of errors that were peskier than gophers after root vegetables. A short five-day trial period seems a bit short, and considering the price tag on this organizer, we'd like a bit more functionality.

Developer's Description

Everybody enjoys the fruits of their labor. A sweet tomato raised by your own hand or red roses adorning the center of your kitchen table. There is satisfaction in watching each shoot pushing up out of the earth from seeds you have planted yourself. The Premium Edition has the ability to maintain a separate journal for multiple gardens. The application is good for those who work on several gardens at once. You can track daily purchases, and each day enter all the purchases you have made for the day. You even can enter and key on the invoice for your purchases. You can export your journal, which can be imported by other gardeners who own Gardener's Journal. It's great for sharing gardening techniques. Plant, seed, and garden supply inventory determine what garden items you have in storage and where they are located. Search for anything in Gardener's Journal, and search for any information you have ever entered in the Premium Edition.

Version 3.1 features unspecified improvements and bug fixes.
