Just as using a trowel or hoe can make quick work of garden to-do’s, digital tools can make planning and planting your garden easier and more enjoyable. That’s why we encourage “gardening at your fingertips” at all levels, from dirt to desktop! Here are a few digital garden tools we think are worth a click.

Are you a gardener who tears sheets from your favorite magazines to make a wish-list file? Do you bookmark websites so that you’ll remember to revisit that page? Then Pinterest is for you. Consider this your digital corkboard with pinned photos of neat tips, inspirational images, and links to how-to articles that you’ll want to reference again and again. Build your own personal library of boards and share pins with friends. Be sure to check out the Bonnie Plants Pinterest boards for our newest varieties to grow in 2013, creative garden designs, and DIY projects for the urban edible landscape. It’s a simple, ingenious way to combine your scrapbooks, bookmarks, Post-it ® notes, and wish lists all in one easy-to-share place.

If you’re a planner as well as a dreamer, you might like our illustrated 4×4 raised bed designs. We give digital planting plans with a shopping list and instructions for designs to suit every taste, including “Fresh & Handy Herb Garden,” “Heirloom Tomato Garden,” and “Fast and Fresh Pizza Garden.

  • Facebook: If you are part of a garden community online, such as the Bonnie Plants page, post a question to fellow members or on our wall.
  • Twitter: Write us at @bonnieplants. We’re here to help.  You’d be amazed what can be shared in 140 characters or less and in the timeframe that you need!
  • Homegrown with Bonnie Plants app: Our app for iPhone (and soon for Android, too!) is a wonderful companion for both new and seasoned gardeners. With it, you can save notes and photos, set reminders, get growing tips and weather updates, track your harvest, and more — all while you’re out in the garden.

Finally, if you’re looking to spend a little more time simply soaking up other people’s gardens, settle back and read a few of the many terrific garden blogs out there. One of the beauties of the internet, after all, is that it allows us to travel thousands of miles in an instant and virtually visit gorgeous gardens on the other side of the world. Our own Bonnie Plants Blog keeps you posted on edibles and provides engaging, informed perspectives on vegetable and herb gardening. Also, if you keep a garden journal (which we highly recommend) consider starting your own garden blog to not only share what’s growing with others, but to catalog and date the events and harvests from season to season.

We hope you use these digital tools and expand your horizons for new ways to find inspiration and share with other gardeners. But don’t forget that the biggest reward of gardening comes from getting your hands in the soil and enjoying your harvest, so make sure you get offline and outdoors, too!
