According to the Sunday Times reviewer the RHS app "has been built with a level of expertise and design nous sadly lacking in many others".
"It is really great to be recognised in this way especially as we are just about to launch this year’s ‘Grow Your Own’ challenge," said Lara Burns, RHS online projects manager. "The app has had over a quarter of a million downloads to date and we have been told by users it is visually appealing and easy to use."
Burns added: "This year’s free version includes 20 fruit and vegetable profiles, including full information on pests and diseases with images and 'my garden' functionality. The app also sends 'alerts' to users’ phones once a month suggesting what they should be doing in their gardens. Users can add content to the app for £1.79 by buying additional content bundles of vegetables, fruit and herbs."
