As promised, I have the results from my gardening app evaluation. For all those who sent in suggestions – thank you very much. With all the wonderful recommendations for apps I have accumulated quite a list to test and evaluate. In fact, expect updates in the near future as more and more apps appear every day.

Following is the rankings of the garden apps I have evaluated thus far. Scores are based on a five-point scale; 1 = poor and 5 = superior.

  1. Dirr's Tree and Shrub Finder at 4.8
  2. A tie: Audubon Guides & iVeggie Garden at 4.6
  3. Leafsnap at 4.4
  4. Garden Plan Pro at 4.1
  5. Landscaper's Companion at 3.7
  6. ID Weeds at 3.4
  7. Tree Key at 3.2
