About Veggie Gardener

Welcome to all veggie gardeners. This blog is here as a support for our super awesome Web app.

What is Veggie Gardener?

VeggieGardener.nz is beautiful, simple and practical. It is all about New Zealand planting times for your chosen veggies. The Web app is totally free with no advertising,  because that is the way we like apps to be.

Here is an overview of the Web app

Why do I need to Sign Up?

The reason you need to create an account is that it holds your unique plant selection, garden diary notes and climate information. This all makes a personalised gardening calendar especially for you.

Who is behind Veggie Gardener?

Scott is a software engineer, mad keen foodie and old school granddad style garden genius. He is passionate about building software that is simple, useful and beautiful with a strong focus on empowering communities.

Rob is a talented sculptor and landscape artist (Instagram @rob.upritchard). He is super excited about gardens, especially those that grow delicious food, as well as all things that are beautiful, simple and wonderful.

Why make the Web app?

“We are both super keen gardeners who run our own businesses, are doing up our houses and are dads to young children. In short we don’t have a lot of time to trawl through the Web or gardening books every time we want to plant some seeds. This Web app is what we wanted, but couldn’t find anything out there like it, so we built VeggieGardener.nz ourselves.”
