Gardening on the go

Rose aficionados and home gardeners have access to two new mobile apps from University of Illinois Extension.

“Our Rose Garden” is an interactive tool that offers information on a variety of that sweetest-smelling flower. Learn how to plant and prune roses, protect them in the winter, and guard them from various diseases and pests. There is a gallery to keep track of  favorite roses, take notes, share ideas with other rose lovers, and make comments. Users also have access to a number of U of I Extension YouTube videos about rose care.

The second app, “Gardener’s Corner Newsstand,” provides access to Extension’s quarterly newsletter about home gardening. The newsletter offers information on gardening topics for every season, the care and maintenance of vegetable and flower gardens, variety selection, and disease prevention and control. This app was developed by Extension horticulturists in northern Illinois.

Visit http://web.extension.illinois.edu/state/apps.cfm to download “Our Rose Garden” free on Google Play or The App Store; “Gardener’s Corner Newsstand” can be downloaded free from The App Store.
