KGI Garden Planner: The Best Way to Plan Your Kitchen Garden

The KGI Garden Planner makes it easy to draw out your vegetable beds, add plants and move them around to get the perfect layout. Either feet and inches or metric units are supported and any shape of garden can be created. Whether you use traditional row planting, raised beds or Square Foot Gardening the KGI Garden Planner adapts to suit your gardening style. And what's more, when you use the Planner, you're helping the garden cause as a percentage from each subscription goes to fund KGI's educational and philanthropic work.


Produce the Perfect Garden Plan

The KGI Garden Planner has over 180 vegetables, herbs and fruit and detailed growing information is just a click away. As you add vegetables the space they require is clearly shown by the colored area around each plant and it calculates how many plants will fit into the area.  Crop rotation is easy as the KGI Garden Planner warns you where you should avoid placing each vegetable based on what was in your previous years' plans.


Adapts to Your Location

The KGI Garden Planner adapts to your own area using our database of over 5000 weather stations. Print your own personalized planting chart showing how many of each plant you require and when to sow, plant and harvest them. Twice a month the KGI Garden Planner sends email reminders of what needs planting from your garden plans.


Simple Yet Powerful

The KGI Garden Planner is both easy to use and flexible. Organize which crops will follow on from others using the succession planting feature and see how your garden will look for each month of the year. Customized varieties can be added with their own spacing and planting dates. Like a garden journal, you can add notes to your plants and plans to track how they grow.


Easy and Inexpensive to Use

The KGI Garden Planner works just like software you are familiar with, including features such as undo, copy and paste. Built-in tutorial videos show you just what you need to know to get the most out of the software. You do not need to install anything as most computers already have the required Adobe Flash Player plug-in.  The KGI Garden Planner is free for 7 days - ample time to plan out your whole growing area.  Setting up your Garden Planner account is easy, no credit card details are required and there is no obligation to subscribe. If you find it useful the annual subscription is $29

Try the KGI Garden Planner Risk-Free for 7 days. No credit card required.
