My Garden Containers app

Updated on:

Garden Making provides the My Garden Containers app so you can enjoy gorgeous containers in your entranceway or on your porch, patio or balcony.

My Garden Containers helps you create stunning plant combinations for beautiful containers by giving you the confidence to mix and match plants using design techniques practiced by professionals.

You can photograph and document your creations to easily share them with friends and other gardeners, too.

The free app includes the full set of features and functionality. My Garden Containers for iPhone and iPad is available in the App Store.

Included in the app is a detailed list of 80+ container plants, as well as how-to articles and videos to help you create a successful container garden. Topics include:
– Choosing your container
– The right soil for containers
– Selecting plants for your design
– Step-by-step guide to planting
– Watering your container garden
– Fertilizing your containers

Recipes for container combos

As in preparing food, starting with a proven recipe helps you achieve the look and result you desire. The app includes plant recipes to try.

You can also easily create your own plant recipes and store them in the app for future reference. Choose from plants in the plant database, which can be sorted and searched based on colour, light requirements, water requirements, design role, size and other criteria, or add other plant choices.

From the comfort of home, peruse the plant list to find interesting plants and appreciate their characteristics before you head to a garden centre.

App development

The My Garden Containers app was created by the editors of Garden Making magazine in 2014. The app is published by Inspiring Media Inc., a family business based in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.

The app was developed by Addicted to Touch, a division of Symetric Productions, Inc. in St. Catharines, Ontario.

The app was made possible with the support of the Ontario Media Development Corp.

  1. Will the Container Gardening App be available for Android and Smart phones as well?

    Sure hope so….it looks like a great tool.

    • Thanks for the encouraging comment. At this time, we need to make sure all works well on the app for the iPhone and iPad before expanding the availability. For our small team, it was a tremendous amount of work – more than we had expected – to develop the app.
