Swipe Your Green Thumbs Across These Gardening Apps 

The Landscaper's Companion and The Mother Earth News Gardening Guide

Gardening gloves? Check. Trowel? Check. Smartphone? Double check.

This spring's hottest apps are a slew of gardening-related cyber-tools geared toward those whose thumbs turn various shades of green this time of year.

The Landscaper's Companion ($6 on iPad and iPhone, $5 on Android) chronicles more than 20,000 plants and veggies, and offers detailed planting zones and tips on appropriate water and sun requirements.

The Mother Earth News Gardening Guide (FREE on iPad and Android) offers some of the environmental conservation magazine's feature articles, with particular emphasis on organic gardening tips. In addition to the usual water and sun requirements, Mother Earth adds great info on PH balances of soil. The app includes a number of ads but again, it's free.

Other apps recommended for the iPhone or iPad include Garden Tracker (99 cents), MyGardenApp (FREE) and Garden Plan Pro (pricey at $9.99, but this iPad-only app is for the serious gardener).
